"SCL" 2005 Obituary

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.
