MATHERS, Frances Louetta (née HALSALL) (1938-2005)
Our very special wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend to many, passed away peacefully, in the arms of her loving family, on Sunday, July 24, 2005, at Saint Mary's General Hospital, at the age of 66 years, following a brief illness.
Daughter of Francis and Constance HALSALL, who predeceased her, Fran will be greatly missed, but will always be remembered adoringly by her husband of 44 years, Dr. Kerry S. MATHERS of Kitchener. She will be especially missed by her caring sons, Shawn MATHERS of Kitchener and Jeff MATHERS of Toronto. Happy memories of "Ma" will always be cherished by her wonderful grandchildren, David and Kerilynn MATHERS, with whom she shared a very special relationship that meant so much to her. She will also be missed dearly by her brother Peter HALSALL and his wife Sesse, nephew Andrew HALSALL and sister-in-law, Robin PROVENCAL of Ottawa.
Fran was a graduate of the University of Toronto, earning her Degree in Physical and Health Education, and after devoting her life to her children and family for many years, she was a successful and highly respected real estate agent in Waterloo Region for the past 22 years. She also made time to volunteer and support many organizations in the community, and was truly an outwardly generous and caring person to all of whom she met, Friends and strangers alike. Her dedication and kindness to her family and Friends was beyond comparison.
She will be remembered with lasting love by her husband Kerry, who remembers his beautiful wife as a member of the Pi Beta Phi Women's Fraternity, Varsity Cheerleader, loyal wife, incredible homemaker, and especially for her love of music, photography, and the arts. She will be missed by everyone who loved her. Her ever present smile, humour, and character will always be part of those who Fran touched while on this earth.
The family will be receiving Friends at the Edward R. Good Funeral Home on Thursday, July 28, 2005, between the hours of 1: 00 p.m. and 4: 00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. The funeral service to honour Fran's life will be held at Knox Presbyterian Church, 50 Erb Street West, Waterloo, at 11: 00 a.m. on Friday, July 29, 2005. Immediately following the service, a celebration of Fran's special life will take place at the Westmount Golf and Country Club in Kitchener.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Frances Mathers Memorial Fund at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. The family would also welcome donations to the Intensive Care Unit at Saint Mary's General Hospital, Kitchener, Ontario.
The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude and appreciation to the doctor's and nursing staff at Saint Mary's General Hospital for their compassion and professionalism while caring for Fran during her brief illness.
"Until we meet again "Ma", our many wonderful memories of you and your beautiful smile will be in our hearts forever."

MATHESON, Wilhillmine Nevett
Born in Glasgow at 6 am April 2, 1914 died at 7 pm on Monday February 7, 2005. She was the last surviving child of Charles Joseph Keith MATHESON and Isa Keith ROSS and at the age of 90 lived the longest of her four brothers; Charles, John, William and Norman and her two sisters Gladys SCLATER and Phyllis MEREDITH. They are survived by Bud MEREDITH, Mary MATHESON and Lucienne MATHESON, the spouses of Phyllis, Billy, and Norm.
Her nieces, Joan GUTZEIT, Marsha GREENBAUM, Barbara WARREN, Pamela HARRISON, Lynda FEENAN, Nikki MATHESON, and Janice MATHESON and nephews Robbie MEREDITH, Ian MATHESON and Bryan MATHESON all have fond memories of her visits. Whether dancing, singing or telling stories, our Auntie Winnie always made each of us feel unique in this world. We will all miss that special quality.
Sadly she lost three young people she was especially close to Lynda's husband Mike OSTROWSKI who died at 44, her nephew Scot MATHESON, Billy's son who died at 38 and nephew Donald MATHESON, Charlie's son who died at 28.
Her oldest brother Charlie (age 19) arrived in Toronto, Canada in the fall of 1928 and was followed by their parents and Gladys (17), John (16), Winnie (14), Phyllis (11), Billy (8) and Norm (6). Winnie started working shortly after she arrived and a year later was employed by General Electric Canada where she worked for 50 years. Quite an achievement, fifty years with one company! She was well liked there and respected for the good job she did in the accounting department. They didn't want her to leave and she agreed to stay for a few months after her 65th birthday.
In her retirement years she enjoyed living in Dunedin, Florida in the winter months and in Toronto at 33 Rosehill Ave. for the remainder of the year. When her health failed she moved to the Laughlin Centre which she enjoyed. With a twinkle in her eye, she remarked that they kept her so busy she might as well be working. She loved the people, companionship, the games and the outings. Later she moved to Belmont House. Her nieces Janice and Marsha who spent time with her during her last two days were impressed by how well she was liked and cared for there during her final days.
A private burial will be held. At a later date this spring, the family has planned a reception to celebrate the lives of Winnie and her brothers and sisters. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be sent to the Alzheimer's Association.

MATHESON, Helen Browne (née McKITRICK)
It is with deep sadness that Helen's family announces her passing on March 7, 2005. She entered hospital with pneumonia on February 19, having suffered a mild heart attack, and never regained full consciousness. Predeceased by her loving husband and best friend of 54 years, Bruce, she leaves behind her three sons and daughters-in-law: Sandy and Margaret, Ian and Carole, and Jamie and Ute. She will always be remembered by her six grandchildren: Lauren and Lee, Amanda and Andrew, and Jason and Laura. Helen was born September 11, 1915, in Orangeville, Ontario to A.D. and Isobel McKITRICK. She had three brothers: Murray (d. 1982), Vic (d. 1954), and Bob, who lives with his wife, June, in Espanola. Helen was a devoted daughter, working alongside her father who owned and edited the local newspaper, The Orangeville Banner. In 1945, she met her future husband, Bruce, when he brought in his first "Agricultural News and Views" column for publishing. They were married in August, 1946. Following her father's death in 1949, Helen was the driving force that kept the paper going until its sale in 1959. She variously managed, wrote copy, and edited, all the while raising three boys and supporting her husband, Bruce, in his job as Dufferin County's "ag rep". No wonder she carried with her a thorough knowledge of local history and the early families of Dufferin and Caledon. Helen immersed herself in family and community life supporting local causes through Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire. She curled each winter and tried to play golf each summer. Passionate about music and bridge, Helen played piano and attended weekly bridge club until just three years ago. An avid reader, Helen was also a collector of early-Canadian glass. Her sons remember her ability to parse sentences perfectly when grammar exercises were homework, her attempts to get them to sing along with The Sound of Music, and her wonderful peach pie! Helen, along with Bruce, loved to dance and laugh, and truly enjoyed the company of Friends, relatives, and especially, her family. 89 full years on this earth... way-to-go, Mom! The family thanks her Friends and caregivers at Lord Dufferin Centre, and thanks also the kind nurses and staff at Headwaters Health Care Centre. Friends may call at the Dods and McNair Funeral Home and Chapel, 21 First Street, Orangeville on Thursday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will be held in the chapel on Friday, March 11, 2005 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Dufferin County Museum or the Canadian Diabetes Association.
