Four widows die in crash
Friends who rarely missed a church event, they were heading home from a church supper before the collision.
By Jane SIMS and Kate DALEY, Special To Sun Media, Mon., November 26, Four women died as a result of a head-on crash involving a minivan and a car on Keil Drive near McNaughton Avenue in Chatham Saturday. (Sarah FRALEIGH, Chatham Daily News)
They were four pillars of a Chatham Anglican church, heading home from a church supper when tragedy struck.
Yesterday, the congregation at Holy Trinity Anglican Church was mourning the loss of four good Friends who rarely missed a church service or event.
The four women died Saturday night after their car was struck head-on in Chatham by a minivan that crossed the centre line on a small curve of Keil Drive near McNaughton Avenue.
Police yesterday hadn't identified the women, but others confirmed they are Jean RIPLEY, 86, Marion DAWSON and sisters Bernice PHILLIPS, 83, and Verna NEAVES, 82, all of Chatham.
Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the crash, police said.
The van's 47-year-old male driver, also of Chatham, was taken to hospital with serious, non-life threatening injuries.
Police hadn't identified him.
The four women were trapped in the car and had to be cut from the wreckage. Three died at the scene and a fourth while being taken to hospital.
All four women were widows and devoted members of the church for decades.
"They were delightful people to be around," said church Deacon Elaine WILCOX. "We just loved them.
"It's a very profound loss because they were always present. It was their continual presence that will be missed."
WILCOX said the church "really was their community. That was their life."
The church is in the midst of helping to plan four funerals. Yesterday's service was an emotional one, WILCOX said.
"It will be difficult for us to be able to come to grips with it," she said.
The women had just left an annual roast beef dinner at the church and were believed to be on their way home.
The two sisters lived in the nearby Trillium Village apartments, RIPLEY at the nearby Residence on the Thames retirement community.
RIPLEY's son is Bob RIPLEY, senior minister at London's Metropolitan United Church and a weekly Free Press religion columnist.
"She died doing something she loved and that was being with people," he said.
He said his mother was a life-long member of the church, and she and his father were married there in 1941.
She always sat in pew No. 19.
RIPLEY was a pioneer in early childhood education in Chatham and began the Fun With Friends program. She headed it for 28 years.
"You couldn't go anywhere with my mom in Chatham without someone speaking to her," her son said.
All four women were involved in the Anglican Church Women and at various times were deeply involved with "the Pie Ladies," a group that made meat pies once a month at the church for sale.
All four women often lunched together after church.
"The biggest shock of all was because people had talked to them that night," said Tom GORDON, the church treasurer.
The suggestion alcohol might have been a cause has made the shock sickening.
"That makes it even worse doesn't it?" GORDON said. "Such a waste."
If alcohol was a factor, it's a "sobering message," said Janine CARR, co-president of the Chatham chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
"It's very sad, very tragic and very sobering because it's four ladies," she said.
Only 20 minutes before the crash, she said, she was riding on a Santa Claus parade float with 15 children for Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada through the intersection where the crash occurred.
WILCOX said church members are leaning on each other and their faith to get through the tragedy.
"We'll get through this week and support each other."
