ROSS, Claire Isabel (née REID)
Died June 17th in Kingston, Ontario where her devoted daughter Cindy ensured that her final years were made comfortable. Claire was the loving daughter of Harold and Clara (SUTTON) REID of Montreal. When Claire grew up in Quebec higher education was a luxury only the affluent could afford. She was sent to secretarial school and then to work at an early age. However, this did not deter her from reading widely, developing a love of poetry, and learning everything she could. Indeed, Claire was a quick and able student who easily mastered anything she set about to learn, whether it was playing bridge, dancing, or learning to speak French. Later, her children came to depend upon her ability and strength of character. They rightly felt that she could do anything - and do it with loving kindness and grace. She could make clothes, hats, upholstery, draperies, pottery, all with her characteristic beauty and elegance. Lucky recipients treasured her hand knit sweaters as one of a kind works of art. Claire was an exceptional and sophisticated cook, who also had flawless taste in interior decorating; she could turn an ordinary room into a beautiful, cozy oasis. Although Claire had a quick and lively wit, she never criticized people or said an unkind word about anyone. She was always cheerful and loved fun as she made everyone feel happy and welcome while she provided endless hospitality. Her husband, Ralph, who died in 1969, often said that the luckiest day of his life was the day he met Claire. She is survived by her three adoring children, Deborah CAMPBELL (David) Fredericton, New Brunswick, Cynthia McKEGNEY (Brian) Sydenham, Ontario, and Ian ROSS (Cheryl) Toronto, and her five beloved grandchildren, Kate and Neal McKEGNEY, Ross CAMPBELL, and Madeleine and Evan ROSS. Also surviving are her three sisters, Mabel ADRIAN, Jessie REESE and Shirley RAMSAY for whom she was a loving sister. She also helped raise two step-daughters, Ruth LEVY and the late Mary KELTON, who were grateful for her compassion and generosity. She was the brilliant, shining light of our lives and we treasure her memory. In keeping with Claire's wishes, cremation will be followed by a private family service. In lieu of donations, please do something kind for someone today in memory of Claire.
