ST. JOHN, Elizabeth

Uxbridge Chapel

Betty St. John died peacefully at Butternut Manor, Uxbridge on Thursday, October 29, 2015. Elizabeth Shiells Rae was born May 26, 1921 in Wingham, Ontario to Donald and Bessie Rae. She left her parents and her siblings, Ronald, Ella, Murray and Bob and western Ontario to study nursing at the Toronto General Hospital graduating in 1944. She married J. Russell St. John MD, on September 29 that year. After Russ completed his military service with the Army Medical Corps and with her firstborn child, they ventured to isolated Howley, Newfoundland where Russell was employed by Bowater Pulp and Paper as the community’s doctor. Betty regaled her children and grandchildren with tales of their adventures, home deliveries with which she assisted, cooking and heating the iron on the wood stove, mummering and the warm hospitality in what was pre-confederation Newfoundland. In 1948, Betty and Russ returned to his home town of Uxbridge where she raised her family of five children, volunteered in the community, provided a base for extended family, maintained close relations with a myriad of friends despite the demands of their medical life- she always loved a party. Betty was the glue that kept the family together while Russ practised medicine for 32 years before they retired and divided their time between Florida and Uxbridge. For the last few years, Betty resided and was a pillar at Butternut Manor. She was predeceased by her parents, her siblings, her son Douglas St. John and her husband Russell St. John.

CHAPMAN, Christopher, CM, RCA, LL.D (hon)
January 24, 1927 - October 24, 2015

Uxbridge Chapel

Christopher passed away peacefully at ReachView Village long-term care facility in Uxbridge, with his devoted wife of 44 years, Barbara-Glen (nee: Kennedy), and family members at his side. He is survived by his son Brig.-Gen (ret.) Julian Chapman (Wendy), his twin brother Francis (Penny), and four grandchildren: Christopher, Amelia, Robert and Alastair. Christopher was predeceased by his first wife Aljean Pert, and by siblings Philippa, Howard, Robert and Sally.  He will be missed by his nieces and nephews. Christopher was born in Toronto, the day after his twin, Francis (they were born either side of midnight), the son of distinguished Toronto architect Alfred Chapman and concert pianist Doris Chapman. He spent a year in England in the 1950s designing cars for the Ford Motor Company before returning to Canada and turning to making films. As a filmmaker he won many awards including an Academy Award (Oscar), and an Etrog, the Canadian equivalent of the Oscar. Christopher was a writer, director, editor and cinematographer whose early films focused on nature and the environment. His first film, The Seasons, funded by Imperial Oil, won the Canadian Film of the Year in 1954. His film A Place to Stand received two Academy Award nominations and won the Oscar for Best Live-Action Short in 1968. Christopher was the first Canadian filmmaker to receive an Oscar outside of the National Film Board. Many will remember the film and its theme song “Ontari-ari-ario”. A Place to Stand was also named Canadian Film of Year at the Canadian Film Awards (CFA).  The innovative creative and technical concepts he pioneered in that film influenced filmmakers worldwide, particularly the concept of “multiple dynamic images”, in which a number of small screens, all full motion, move around the large screen. He was awarded the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts medal for achievements in the art of cinematography and presented with the first Ontario Film Institute Award for his significant contribution to the development of  Canadian film. He was the recipient of the 1967 Centennial Medal, the 1977 Jubilee Medal and the Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation. Christopher was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 1987, and awarded a Doctor of Laws by Ryerson University in 2000. Christopher served as president of both the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and the Directors Guild of Canada. He was also a member of the The Loyal, Ancient and Honourable Order of the Unicorn, and of the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto. Christopher was an artist of many visual talents, and after his distinguished filmmaking career, he turned to still photography. He produced a photographic series titled Reflected Images, with mural-size images that were exhibited extensively in Canada and abroad.  One aspect of his legacy of which he was particularly proud was the establishment of the Land Fellowship, an early organization in the field of organic farming. He later made a film on the subject appropriately titled A Sense of Humus. Following cremation, a private funeral service was held.  Visitation will be at the Low & Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street South, Uxbridge, on Thursday, October 29th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.  A celebration of Christopher's life will be held in Uxbridge at Wooden Sticks Golf Club, Sunday, November 15, 2015 from 2-4 p.m.  In memory of Christopher, and in grateful appreciation for two years of loving care, donations may be made to ReachView Village, 130 Reach Street, Uxbridge, ON L9P 1L3  The family also expresses gratitude to Drs. Terry Bryon, Michael Damus and Arun Mather.  Send Condolence

FEDOROFF, Beverley Ida (nee Hill)

Port Perry Chapel 
  



 

Bev passed away on October 16, 2015 while in the ICU of the Civic Hospital in Ottawa Ontario. Beverley is survived by her loving husband of 16 years, Paul, her parents William and Jackie Hill of Lindsay, Ontario, her brother George Hill (Darlene), her brothers and sisters-in-law, Andrey Fedoroff (Andrea), Marina Fedoroff (Jim), Michael (Kristi), nieces, Lucy Fedoroff, Katherine Fedoroff, Amanda Hill and nephews, Paul Fedoroff, Brad and Evan Hill. Bev was born December 19, 1964 and was very proud to grow up in Saint Field, Ontario. Bev cherished and was cherished by her family and many dear friends. People were drawn to Bev's infectious and devilish sense of fun and her warm caring heart. She started her professional life as a hair dresser moving on to becoming a psychiatric nurse, practicing at the Whitby Psychiatric Hospital where she met her future husband, Paul, a psychiatrist. Bev and Paul then began what would be a wonderful life together. Bev created a beautiful home in Ottawa and she was hostess to many wonderful parties there. In Bev’s house, Christmas wasn’t Christmas without at least three trees! Following Bev’s successful battle with breast cancer in her late thirties Bev and Paul spent a great deal of time travelling the world together and Bev threw her seemingly boundless energy into supporting Paul in his research and practice. Then, Bev, who was always up for a new challenge, was admitted to the University of Ottawa Law School just prior to turning 50. She completed her first year, enjoying life as a mature student and of course making many new friends. Bev gave the best hugs you can imagine, never met a pair of four inch heels she didn’t love and lit up a room with her smile. She packed her too short life full of love, laughter, family, adventure and caring friendships. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. The family and especially her husband Paul would like to thank the nurses, doctors and staff of the ICU at the Civic Hospital in Ottawa for their devoted care.

A Memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 24th at Low & Low Funeral Home (1763 Reach St, Port Perry, Ontario) at 3 p.m. A Celebration of Beverley’s life will be held in Ottawa (34 Rideauview Terrace) on Saturday November 7th from 2 to 6 p.m. A Memorial will be held at a later date in Saskatoon SK. In lieu of flowers donations to CHEO (www.cheo.on.ca) would be appreciated. Send Condolence

TAYLOR, Blanche Edna (Mortson, Fletcher)

Uxbridge Chapel 

Passed away peacefully at MacKenzie Health Centre, Richmond Hill, on Sunday September 13th, in her 95th year. Predeceased by her husband Willis Taylor and an infant son Willis Jr.; her brother Cecil Fletcher (Dorothy), Cochrane; her sister Gladys Halligan (Red), Thornhill; and her adoptive parents Fred and Mary Mortson, Beaverton. Survived by her brother Lorne (Bernice) Mortson, Beaverton; and remaining sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws. Much loved and proud Mother of four sons, Wayne (Anne) of Cambridge, Walter (Penny) of Uxbridge, Sandy (Sue) of Peterborough, and Dale (Andrea) of Bethany. A very special Grandma/Granny to 11 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; and aunt to many nieces and nephews. Blanche was born April 2nd, 1921, in Perth Andover, New Brunswick, the third child of Herbert Cecil Fletcher and Blanche Ethel Gidley. Her mother passed away three days following her birth. The family then moved to Cochrane, Ontario, to join relatives a year later. At three years of age, she was adopted and later moved with her new family to Stouffville. Growing up on a farm she enjoyed the outdoors and farm life. Later, she and her husband Willis farmed near Bloomington for a few years, and then moved to Brougham for a year. The family then moved to Goodwood in 1952 where they operated Taylor’s General Store for many years. After the store closed, Blanche remained in Goodwood and continued to be active in church life. She was blessed with many, many, friends whom she treasured and loved, always enjoying their companionship and serving a cup of tea when they visited. She was the recipient of many awards for her gardens and community involvement. And no matter how busy she was, found time to bake a pie or cake for a community event. She always had an open door, and welcomed many into her home. She loved it best when surrounded by family and friends, all of whom were so important in helping her in later years. Her family is most appreciative of the special and caring staff of the Willows Estate Nursing Home, Aurora, where she lived the past 5 years. While she will be dearly missed, her lasting legacy for everyone will be memories of her hard work, sense of community, love of life, and the love and joy she gave to and received from family and friends.

 EVANS, Rev. Clifford

Port Perry Chapel 

Left us peacefully at the age of 92 on July 29, 2015, following a brief, unexpected illness. Dearly loved husband of Mary Christine Evans, and loving father of sons David (Maria Bonanno), Peter (Janie Brennan) and Richard (Tamara Bernier), and grandchildren Meredith (9) and Owen (4).
Born in 1922 and raised in Cardiff, Wales, Clifford studied at Richmond Theological College, London, England and was ordained a Minister of the Methodist Church of England in 1953.  Clifford and Christine first met while he was at College, married in 1953, and after serving in pastorates in Halifax and Swindon, they brought their young family with two sons to Montreal in 1959.  Clifford joined the United Church of Canada and served the congregation of Queen Mary Road United Church as assistant Minister responsible for youth. In 1962 he was called to serve at City View United Church, Nepean, Ontario where Richard joined the family in 1964. Clifford also served as Chaplain to the Ottawa Welsh Society for several decades.
Devoted to professionalism and life-long learning Clifford attended Carleton University part-time over many years, while also leading growth of the City View congregation and development of a new Church building.  He graduated from Carleton with an Honours degree in Political Science and German.  Clifford was a voracious reader and student and during the mid-1970’s he devoted himself to full time studies at the University of Western Ontario, graduating with a Masters Degree in Library Science.  After four years with federal government libraries, Clifford returned to work with the United Church in eastern Ontario at Williamstown and Martintown, and retired at 65 to Almonte, Ontario in 1988. Within weeks he began supporting the local United Church and was called on by the United Church of Canada to focus efforts on interim Ministry to assist congregations in transition across Eastern Ontario.  Finally retiring at age 75, he and Christine enjoyed many happy years in Almonte before joining the Port Perry community in 2014. Greatly respected for his dedication, humour, and commitment to others, Clifford was a people person, loved by so many for his work, constant optimism and drive to take on new challenges and serve others.  Family and Friends will be received at the Low & Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, Port Perry (905) 985-7331 on Saturday August 22, 2015 from 1 to 2 p.m. A memorial service to celebrate the life of Rev. Evans will be held in the chapel on Saturday August 22, 2015 at 2 p.m.  If desired, donations in Clifford’s memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.  Send Condolence
