In tears we saw you sinking, we watched you fade away, our hearts were almost broken you fought so hard to stay.

God saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be, so he wrapped his arms around you and whispered “come with me.”

Your golden heart stopped beating, your gentle hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best.

But when we saw you sleeping, so peacefully free from pain, we could not wish you back, to suffer that again.

Loving and proud “Great-Gram” to her nine great-grandchildren; Chris, Marissa, Kelsey, and Jenna Chaplinsky, Maryn, Stella and Gracie Wray, Avery and Elliot Scott.  Gerry was a kind, patient and loving grandmother.  From shopping, to baking, to teaching them how to play cards, Gram was ever patient and full of fun.  She will also forever be remembered for her poker expertise and the sayings she attached to some of the card games: “Aces and Jack’s and the man with the axe and a pair of seven’s takes all!”  Those gingerbread houses she so lovingly helped the great-grandchildren assemble at Christmas were a real work of art, including the one she worked on with them just one week before she died.  Gerry worked for many years in Long Term Care, first as a cook and later as a Personal Support Worker.  Following her retirement, she spent many happy winters in Florida. Gerry was an avid fan of both the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Blue Jays.  She seldom missed watching a game on TV and even took in a few Blue Jays games with her grandson, Joe.  Bingo and trips to the casino always brightened her day and Gram always managed to “break even”.  Gerry is greatly missed by her family and friends.  Special thanks to the staff of Victoria Manor (McMillan House), Lindsay, for their loving care and kindness shown to Gerry during her stay with them.

HOCKLEY, Earl Bedford

Uxbridge Chapel

It is with profound sadness we mourn the sudden loss of our father who passed away on Friday, March 18, 2016. Preceded in death by his wife and love of his life, Carolle Hockley (nee Barton). Father to Pamela; Louise and Brenda (Evan); grandfather to Melissa (Sean); Chris (Claire); Ryan; Luke (Katie); Jake (Ceilidh); Kyle and Jenelle; great-grandfather to Dylann, Bradley, Britton, Hayden, Hunter; brother; uncle; cousin and friend. Born and raised in the Township of Uxbridge, Dad will be fondly remembered for his sense of humour, sharp wit, jokes and storytelling. Dad was an avid golfer.  He brought mom into the game as we grew up and found our own interests outside the home, adding to the connection that was ever present between he and Mom.  He was an avid musician, often heard by us during our younger years sitting in the recreation room of our home playing his guitar and singing along, seemingly for hours.  Dad placed a fishing pole into each of our hands at a very young age, introducing us to the things he most loved to do in his spare time.  He travelled a great deal throughout the years we were growing up and to make up for it he made sure to fill every moment of his time when home with his four girls; Mom and his daughters spending time together as a family. Dad was an artist. He created works of art that adorned our walls throughout our lives, even after the loss of sight in one eye, accomplished in oils, pastels and charcoals.  He could take rather innocuous pieces and turn them into his unique creations; popsicle sticks and golf balls more recently. Working in the oil and gas business took dad all over the world.  We had the pleasure of spending near every summer break during our school years visiting Dad in the cities where he was assigned, becoming familiar with Edmonton over a number of years, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth Texas and New Orleans, to name a few.  He left his profession and travel as the last of his daughters left home, returning to work at Koch – Glitsch in Uxbridge, and to mom’s side to fill the void left from our absence.  Dad’s three daughters wish to extend our sincerest gratitude and heartfelt thank you to the staff at Butternut Manor for always going above and beyond with the kindness and generosity you gave, not only to Dad during his brief stay but to us as well.  Visitation will be held at the Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main Street S., Uxbridge (905-852-3073) on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 from 5-8p.m.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital.  Send Condolence

MARTYN, Dora Fern Shantz

Port Perry Chapel

Our Mom passed away peacefully on the morning of March 9, 2016, having reached the age of 92. Mom was predeceased by our father, Harold, in 2011, their granddaughter Amanda and their son Blair. She leaves behind her sons Ron and Todd, daughter-in-law’s Kelly, Jan and Ellie. Dora's grandchildren are Tim Martyn; Brian Martyn; Julia Martyn Shah and Mihir Shah;  Josh and Christina Martyn; Luke Martyn and Keiko Yasuda and great grandson Sena Martyn. To us all she has left a lifetime of memories and the example that you can do anything you want - without being the centre of attention. She quietly achieved personal greatness in so many ways: working on the bomber line during WWII, graduating from Cartwright High School a year ahead of her eldest son, graduating from Teachers College, teaching young women through 4-H, as a founding member of the ONO, as a lifetime member of the Women's Institute,  organizing the Touch of Country singing group, square dancing, hand crafting in so many mediums, learning to play accordion and violin in her late 70's and initiating the infamous Martyn Christmas Concert. We would like to thank the incredible staff at Port Perry Villa, where Mom lived for 5 years, for their kindness and laughter. She very proudly called the Villa her home where she was an active member of the Art Group, walked daily, and quietly became a regular member of this supportive community of seniors. We would also like to thank the staff at Reachview Village Nursing Home for the compassionate and kind care we all received from them these last 8 weeks.  In lieu of flowers you may donate to the Port Perry Villa Resident Fund, the Reachview Village Resident Fund or the Blackstock United Church.  A service to celebrate Dora’s life will be held at the Blackstock United Church on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at 1:00, after which everyone is invited to join our families for tea and coffee. Arrangements entrusted to Low & Low Funeral Home (1763 Reach Street, Port Perry, 905-985-7331). Send Condolence

HOCKLEY, Carolle Edna (nee Barton)

Uxbridge Chapel

It is with profound sadness we mourn the loss of our beloved, gracious, and tender hearted wife of Earl Hockley of 55 years; mother of Pamela, Louise and Brenda (Evan); grandmother of Melissa (Sean), Chris (Claire), Ryan, Luke (Katie), Jake (Ceilidh), Kyle and Jenelle, great-grandmother of Dylann, Bradley, Britton, Hayden, Hunter as well as a sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Mom passed away peacefully in her sleep after a courageous acceptance of her illness on Thursday, March 3, 2016 with her daughters and friends at her side. Mom genuinely loved life and lived it to the fullest. She had a passion for doing and giving. She was an avid golfer, health enthusiast (often beating a path on one of Uxbridge’s many beautiful trails) and gardener, providing a safe haven to many wild creatures that entered her back yard. The many birds, squirrels and chipmunks that frequented mom’s back yard found sanctuary in her pristine gardens. Yet with all that, she always found plenty of time and energy to create special moments for her many family and friends. Mom maintained a career as an Insurance Broker for nearly 30 years, raising three daughters with time aside to coach her daughter’s in softball, teach Sunday School at the United Church in Uxbridge, was a 4H and Brownie Leader, hospital auxiliary volunteer, canvassed for the heart and stroke society as well as piano teacher, having succeeded in achieving her Grade VIIII with the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto. Mom was most happy spending time with her family and considered her closest friends as family.  She never missed a birthday and put every effort into being a part of special occasions leaving lasting memories for all.  This is Mom’s greatest legacy to all that were gifted by her thoughtfulness. Mom always saw humour in life events and never missed the chance to laugh at herself as much as we were laughing along with her. As our Mom taught us, take time to smell the flowers. Maybe hold them tightly, with an equality of understanding. Touch each and every one, with the comfort and love that is their destined role on this ride called life. Light the way . . .

Visitation will be held at the Low and Low Funeral Home, 23 Main St. S., Uxbridge (905-852-3073) on Monday, March 7, 2016 from 5-8p.m.  A Celebration of Carolle’s Life will take place at St. Paul’s Leaskdale Presbyterian Church, 12251 Regional Road 1, Leaskdale on Tuesday, March 8, 2016 from 2-5p.m. with Remembrance’s of Carolle being shared at 2:15p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital.
