COTTON, Mary A. (née SMITH)
Of Owen Sound and Tobermory passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital on Thursday, June 26, 2008 in her 87th year. Mary was predeceased by her loving husband Harold and will be deeply missed by her children Penny CURTIS (the late Bill CURTIS) of Brampton, Linda RIEGER (Ray) of Port Stanley, Robert COTTON of Owen Sound/Tobermory and Valerie COTTON of Bolton as well as by her grandchildren Tracy JONES (Jeff,) Terri BENWELL (Rick,) Karen WOLFENDEN (Geoff,) James CURTIS (Lara), Anne CURTIS and Daniel COTTON- KOVEN. In her later years, Mary was especially delighted by visits from her great-grandchildren Jessie, Kayla, Michael, Tyson, Caleb, Madison and Chloe. Mary was the daughter of the late Rev. Robert SMITH and Dora (nee FIELDS) and was predeceased by her sisters Dora and Jenny and her brothers Herbert and Arthur. Growing up she lived in many small towns in the Eastern townships and Quebec and then attended McGill University and MacDonald Normal School in Montreal. After teaching for one year, she enrolled in the Canadian Women's Army Corps and while serving in London, England met and married Harold. Mary was a spirited, independent and intelligent woman. While raising her family, she returned to teaching and continued her education, graduating from Queen's University (1971) and qualifying as a primary educational specialist and teaching librarian. She was instrumental in designing and establishing elementary school libraries in Owen Sound. The young children loved story time with Mrs. COTTON and she had many devoted library helpers over the years. Mary had many varied interests (reading, music (piano), travel, knitting, bridge, rocks) and like her husband Harold, continued to learn and take on new challenges. Mary and Harold were tremendous role models for their children, students and Friends. Sincere appreciation is expressed to the staff of the Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital for the loving care provided to Mary. Visitation will be held at the George Funeral Home, 430 Mary Street, Wiarton on Sunday, June 29, 2008 from 7: 00 to 9: 00 p.m. and on Monday, June 30th from 12:30 p.m. until the time of the service at 2: 00 p.m. Interment Bayview Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the Alzheimer Society, Friends of the Tobermory Library or a children's charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. Condolences may be left for the family through www.georgefuneralhome.com

RIENHARDT o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-06-02 published
COLE, David Kenneth (1946-2008)
Those of us who knew and love David will not dishonor his memory with cliché and sentiment. Let it just be said that in his absence there is a hole in the world that will never be filled. This is fact, not sentiment. Let it be also said that our lives will be forever diminished. This is a fact. We must all start again and carry on and try to be brave.
To strike a conventional note: David is survived by his cherished daughter Meghan and his baby granddaughter Ivy Rose RIENHARDT, by his son Lliam, whom he loved so much, and (yet another) baby granddaughter Isabel Marie, by Anne BROMLEY, Meghan and Lliam's mother and David's former wife, whom he admired and loved to the end of his life, by his beloved brother and sister Tim and Ardra, by Tim's daughter Alex and finally by his adoring and grateful twin spirit of over thirty years, Barbie NICHOL.
And by Mister Brown.
For those with a mind to, the family would be so thankful for any memories you might think of to put on paper. There will be a place to leave these notes at the Memorial.
The Memorial Service will be held at Trinity-St Paul United Church (427 Bloor Street West) at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 6th, with a wake afterwards at Sarah and Tom MILROY's house at 73 Linwood Ave.
There will be a service in Nova Scotia at a time yet to be decided upon.
Davey's ashes will be dispersed on Nova Scotia's Atlantic shore. His home.
