BROUGHTON, Esther Margaret (née JOHNSON) (1916-2008)
Esther BROUGHTON, peacefully on May 8, 2008 at Christie Gardens, Toronto, in her 93rd year. Predeceased by her husband of 45 years, J. Harold BROUGHTON (d. 1989.)
Loving mother of Catherine BROUGHTON (Joseph MARSHALL) of Thornhill Thora BROUGHTON (George ABONYI) of Ottawa, and Alan BROUGHTON (Heather) of Ottawa. Cherished grandmother of Adam (Sarah), Alyssa, Erik and partner Kathryn AKER, David, Ben, Sam and Avery; and devoted great-grandmother of Emma.
Survived by her brother Herbert JOHNSON (Mildred) of Oakville, her sister, Christine MacKAY of Toronto, her sister-in-law Anne JOHNSON of Comox, British Columbia, and by many nephews, nieces and their families.
Daughter of the late Sigurdur (Sam) JOHNSON and Thora (ASMUNDSON) JOHNSON of Vancouver. Predeceased by her brother Val and his wife Magda, and brothers Harold, Raymond and Randolph JOHNSON.
Born in Tantallon, Saskatchewan, Esther grew up in Prince Albert and Wynyard. She graduated from Saskatoon Normal School and taught school in Aneroid before meeting Harold at Dafoe. They married in 1944 and soon moved to Toronto, where they resided on Tyrrell Avenue and then Inglewood Drive. Proud of her Icelandic heritage, she and Harold were staunch supporters of the Icelandic Canadian Club of Toronto. They were avid curlers at the Granite Club and enjoyed family summers at Balsam Lake, and skiing at Limberlost and Summit. For many years she volunteered as a teacher's assistant at inner city schools, and as a teacher of English as a Second Language. Esther was a long time member of Timothy Eaton Memorial Church and an enthusiastic participant in its Community Service Club.
A Memorial Service will be held in the chapel at the Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Eglinton Avenue East) on Thursday, May 29, 2008 at 11 o'clock. Condolences and memories may be forwarded through www.humphreymiles.com
