TESKEY, William Howard
In his 84th year. Passed away at home on Thursday, May 1st, 2008. Beloved husband of Gertrude for 58 years. Loving father to John (Sheila), Gary (Minerva), Roy (Jane), Mark (Michele) and Cheryl (Vincent). Grandfather to Jeffrey, Ian, Philip, Christine, Kurt, William, Scott, James, Gary, Patrick, Katie and Emily; brother to Marion EADIE; predeceased by brothers Melvin, George and sister Joan. Howard was born in Orillia, a farmer's son. He met and married Gertie in Orillia and they came to Toronto in 1944 and started their family. In 1952, Howard and his brothers George and Mel founded Teskey Construction and Teskey Concrete which has provided a livelihood for many Toronto area families for over 50 years. The business provided the backdrop for a wonderful life with family, Friends and work colleagues alike, as Howard will be remembered as someone who loved life and lived it to the fullest. Howard greatly enjoyed golfing at St. George's, the National and the Vines Golf Clubs, cottage time in Orillia, winters in Florida and taking trips with Gertie and 'the boys'. His dry sense of humour and enjoyment of time with Friends and family, together with the 'odd' cigar were signature Howard moments. Howard was a devoted hockey dad and became a devoted hockey Granddad and took pride in all of his childrens' and grandchildrens' accomplishments, whether hockey, golf, baseball, academic achievements or just visits with him. Howard will be greatly missed by the employees of Teskey, his many work acquaintances, his golfing and card room buddies, and his and Gertie's many dear Friends. Friends may call at the Turner and Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas St. W., Etobicoke, (between Islington and Kipling Aves.) Saturday from 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. Funeral service will be held on Sunday, May 4, 2008 at 2 o'clock at Kingsway Lambton United Church, 85 The Kingsway, Toronto. A graveside service will be held in Orillia at St. Andrews/Saint_James Cemetery on Monday, May 5, 2008 at 12 noon for family and Friends in Orillia. Donations to the Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.

MEDLEY, Kathleen Marie (née CLOUGH- ORMISTON)
In loving memory of Kathleen Marie MEDLEY (née CLOUGH- ORMISTON) who died Saturday morning, February 2, 2008 in Oakville. She was born on August 6, 1921 to Frank and Marjorie (née TESTER) CLOUGH- ORMISTON, in Pembroke, Ontario and was the older sister to the late Doctor Michael ORMISTON. During her childhood, she spent time in Ontario, Indiana and Kentucky before attending school in England. She graduated from Ashford School and earned a full scholarship to King's College in London where she received her B.Sc. in Geography and Physics as well as her A.K.C. She attended university during World War 2 enduring the Blitz in London, and she volunteered for the Auxiliary Territorial Service and drove an ambulance in London in 1943. After the war, she lived in Paris before returning to Canada. Marie enjoyed the North and often recalled fondly her experiences teaching north of Kapuskasing in Smokey Falls, Ontario in a one-room schoolhouse in 1947. In 1948 she married Graham B. MEDLEY in Toronto and in 1952 they moved to Onaping, Ontario where they raised their 6 children John, Michael, Virginia, Andrew, and twins Quintus and Marjorie alongside other early residents who, in sharing this adventure, became lifelong Friends. She later described this time in Onaping as the happiest years of her life. Marie greatly enjoyed being a supply teacher at Levack District High School in the 60's and 70's and at Sudbury Secondary and Lo-Ellen Park in the 80's. She loved the arts, especially classical music and live theatre and she was a long-time supporter of the Sudbury Theatre Centre. She also served on the Onaping Falls Library Board and was instrumental in establishing a library branch in Dowling. Marie died after a long and courageous battle with Parkinson's disease and is survived by her children, 9 grandchildren, and 5 nieces and nephews. Family will receive visitors on Wednesday, February 6, 2008 from 6: 00 p.m. until a Service of Remembrance at 7:00 p.m. all in the Ward Funeral Home Chapel, 109 Reynolds Street, Oakville (905-844-3221). Donations made to the Parkinson's Foundation would be appreciated and condolences may be sent to
