"ELY" 2006 Obituary


ELY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-10-31 published
SHELDRICK, Audrey Vivian "Bobby" (née CANNING)
Passed away in her 93rd year on Monday, October 30th, 2006, at Bridgepoint Health Centre. Audrey joins her late husband Ted, who predeceased her in June 1985. Loving mother of Teddene LONG and her husband Robert, Marsha ELY and her husband Alan. Grandmother of Bradley, and his wife Denise, Janelle and her husband Rob LONG, Carly ELY, Claudine and her husband Ryan ADLINGTON. Great-grandmother of Ainsley and Carson LONG. Audrey was a special lady, who enjoyed each day. She selflessly gave to those around her and always found the positives in her Friends and family. She had a wonderful life journey and we were all fortunate to share it with her. She will truly be missed as she was "the wind beneath our wings". As a teacher, Audrey often remarked "a hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of home I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But, the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child". We seem to give them back to you, O God, You who gave them to us, Yet as you did not lose them in giving So do we not lose them by their return… And life is eternal and love is immortal and death is only a horizon and an horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight. Lift us up, strong son of God that we may see further; cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly. Draw us closer to yourself that we may know ourselves to be nearer our loved ones who are with you. A memorial service will be held on Thursday November 2nd at R.S. Kane Funeral Home, 6150 Yonge Street, followed immediately by a reception. In lieu of flowers, if desired, donations can be made in memory of Audrey to Unicef, 2200 Yonge Street 416-482-0105.

McAVITY, John Malcolm
Of Vancouver died peacefully at home, surrounded by his family, at 10: 00 o'clock on the morning of July 12, 2006. Born on July 18, 1917, John grew up in Rothesay, New Brunswick, attended Rothesay Collegiate, and subsequently Royal Military College, Kingston, quickly followed by service in England, Italy and the low countries during the Second War. John is survived by his loving wife of sixty four years, Adine (Dids) McAVITY (née OLAND,) his son Eric Oland (Judith MAXWELL) of Canmore, Alberta, his daughters Frances Denise HAZEN of Vancouver and Catherine Martha DOUGLAS/DOUGLASS (John KAYE) of North Saanich, British Columbia and his granddaughter Martha ELYSE of Canmore, Alberta. He was predeceased by his eldest son J.P. Malcolm (Patricia McAVITY née GIBSON) of North Saanich in 2001, by his parents Frances Edith HAZEN and Thomas Malcolm McAVITY in 1933 and 1944 respectively, and by his two younger brothers, Douglas Malcolm of Greenwich, Connecticut and Peter Malcolm of St Louis, Missouri. Dad started his post war working life with his cousin Hugh MacKAY in Saint John, New Brunswick, in a profession in which he spent his entire working life, and which culminated with RBC Dominion Securities in Vancouver in 1986. As a volunteer in his adopted west coast community, Dad served with great dedication as a director and chair of the board of the Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society and also as a director and chair of the Board of Governors of Shawnigan Lake School. Dad maintained a life long interest in his woodwork shop, his garden, the Cook Gun Club at Vedder Crossing, fishing at Pennask Lake and most importantly, in maintaining his close connection with so many many Friends, all of which gave him immense pleasure. In his later years, Dad suffered with kidney failure and spent the last ten years of his life as a patient at the dialysis unit at Vancouver General Hospital. During this time he was lovingly supported by so many Friends: the "fly boys" who faithfully drove him to and from so many of his dialysis appointments, and to his care givers, Rudy, Maria and Fatima and Dino. A special thanks to Rev. Kevin Dixon and Bishop Jim Cruickshank of Saint Mary's Kerrisdale, to Doctor A.B. (Tony) Wilson and to Dad's palliative care team, Shirley, Lea and Rose-Marie, all of whom so graciously assisted Dad/Grampa on the final leg of his life's journey. A Memorial Service will be held at Saint Mary's Kerrisdale, 2490 West 37th Avenue, Vancouver, on Dad's 89th birthday, Tuesday, July 18, 2006 at 2: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, and if you are so moved, donations can be made to the Canadian Arthritis and Rheumatism Society (British Columbia and Yukon Division), 393 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1E6: or to the Vancouver General Hospital and University of British Columbia Hospital Foundation (Renal Program), 855 West 12th Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, V5Z 1M9, (604-875-5240), in remembrance of John Malcolm McAVITY.
