On Saturday, May 17th, 2008, after a mercifully short and remarkably stoic battle with cancer, Sadie passed away peacefully. She was the adored wife of Archie for almost 64 years; loving mother to Don (Barbara Ann), Brian (Sylvie) and Barbara; and a irrepressible grandmother to Benjamin, Samuel, Jessica and Ross. Sister to Jim COLEMAN of Bangor, N. Ireland (deceased,) Betty McCONNELL of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and June PIDUTTI of Pignano, Italy. Sadie was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. During the war she was a sergeant in the Auxiliary Territorial Service, the women's branch of the British Army. She and Archie had a wartime romance and wedding; five days later, he was on a troop ship to Bombay. Not to be outdone, Sadie volunteered for overseas service and finished out the war in Egypt and Kenya. After the war, with Don only a year old, she joined Archie for new adventures in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). They spent 15 years in that beautiful country and Brian and Barbara were born there. With civil war looming, the intrepid pair left Africa and moved to Canada; first to Montreal and then Mississauga, where they have lived for the past 43 years. Sadie worked for many years as a secretary with the Peel Board of Education, running her school with trademark efficiency and good humour. Sadie was happiest when surrounded by family and Friends. She always liked 'something going on' and adored getting together for fun and conversation. She was an expert teller of tales and her quick wit usually left her listeners helpless with laughter. The lights shone brighter when Sadie was around. A special thanks to the exceptional staff at Beechwood Court and Beechwood Place for their extraordinary care and compassion. The concern, respect and heartfelt feelings they displayed to Sadie and her family leavened this difficult journey. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of her life will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 25, 2008 at Applewood United Church, 2067 Stanfield Road, Mississauga, Ontario. Reception follows at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
