The moment that you died, my heart was torn in two

One side filled with heartache, the other died with you.

I often lie awake at night when the world is fast asleep, and

Take a walk on memory lane with tears upon my cheeks.

Remembering you is easy I do it every day,

But missing you is heartache that never goes away.

I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain.

Until the joyous day arrives that we will meet again.

CLERMONT, Isobel

Port Perry Chapel

Isobel Clermont passed away at home in Port Perry on Friday, June, 21 2019 at the age of 92. She will be missed tremendously by her daughter Celine, and son in-law Dan, as well as extended family and friends.

Isobel was a special individual who made a positive impression on everyone who crossed her path. She was a generous and giving person who seldom, if ever, complained. She always had a good word for everyone, and was upbeat and pleasant, even when in excruciating pain.

Isobel lost her husband of 64 years Roger, several years ago, and that left a huge void in her life. But she always remained positive, spending countless hours watching TV with Celine or reading with her dog Sookie by her side.

Over the past three months, Isobel was bedridden, and her health declined rapidly. The doctor, nurses, and personal service workers came to the house and provided her with excellent care. During those visits one thing became abundantly clear, they recognized how special Isobel really was, and bonds of friendship were immediately established.

When notified of her passing, many offered kind words, and described how this frail Scottish senior had touched their lives.

Isobel was a modest women, who went through life with a kind word and a smile. She was by no means financially wealthy, but it didn’t matter. Her currency was her character, and the way she treated and loved people. Isobel always left everyone feeling good about themselves, friends and strangers alike.

She will be missed dearly.  

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, July 14, 2019 from 1pm until 4pm at the Oshawa and District Shrine Club, 1626 Simcoe Street North, Oshawa. Arrangements entrusted to the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, Port Perry (905-985-7331). Donations in honour of Isobel may be made to the Scugog Humane Society or the Oak Ridges Hospice of Durham. Send Condolence

DOUGLAS, Kenneth Frederick  

Uxbridge Chapel

Kenneth was born September 20, 1940 in Toronto, Ontario and passed away on June 20, 2019 at the age of 78 after a valiant battle with terminal cancer. Ken worked in the ‘shoe business’ for over 40 years, and spent much of his career as the manager of the men’s department at Harry Young Shoes in Toronto. He had many loyal customers over the years as the store catered to the niche market of hard to fit feet. He often recalled his earlier days as a youth working as an usher in the beautiful Eglin and Winter Garden Theatre. Ken has had a love for film and would while driving through the city, point out the location of long ago closed theatres such as the Shea Hippodrome theatre where the new Toronto City Hall now stands and tell the story of film chosen to close the theatre (an Elvis film), which caused such an uproar that the theatre had to eventually close with another film deemed as more suitable. That film was Casablana. Ken described through his stories, the story of his city growing with him – from going to the movies for $0.25 (admission and snacks), to playing in the Don Valley ravines before the highway came through, to riding the subway for the first time. Ken grew up in the Danforth area and was the oldest of 6 children.

Caring husband to Sonia (Kosowan) for 29 years, loving father to Tammy (Stephanie) Douglas and Tracey Douglas and proud grandpa to his grandson, Everett Richard-Douglas. Ken is predeceased by Sonia (2012) and Tracey (2014). Ken is also predeceased by parents, Fred and Irene (Dowling) Douglas and siblings Sandra and Barry Douglas. He is survived by, and will be lovingly remembered by siblings Ron (Jean) Douglas, Donna (Tom) McLarty, Wayne (Donna) Douglas and sister-in-law Betty (Toth) Douglas as well as many cherished cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Ken will be greatly missed by his daughter & family.

A gathering to celebrate his life will be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 11am-2pm at the home of his daughter, Tammy. Ken will be cremated and laid to rest at Bowmanville Cemetery, 130 Haines Street, Bowmanville, ON. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society are most welcome. Ken was well supported by the volunteers in the Wheels of Hope program that assisted in driving him to his many treatments. Thanks go out to Lakeridge Health Oshawa for their continued support and care of Ken during his illness. Send Condolence

FRAME, CLIFFORD HUGH, P.ENG.,B.A.Sc.

Port Perry Chapel

1933 - 2019

Cliff passed away on May 21, 2019, aged 85, following a short illness, with his loving wife Catherine by his side at his home in Uxbridge. He is survived by Catherine, his seven children: Wendy, Kathleen, Jamie, Clifford, Geordie, Cameron and Mervyn; his 15 grandchildren: Clifford, Callum, Kyle, Andre, Shannon, Isabelle, Shane, Natasha, Nicholas, Alexa, Charlotte H., Kayleigh, Avery, Charlotte F. and Everleigh; and seven great-grandchildren.

Cliff was born in Russel, Manitoba, but was brought up in Trail, BC, after his parents moved there is 1935. Cliff often commented that he had an idyllic childhood in the mining town of Trail. The town had one of the best junior A hockey teams in Canada at the time, The Trail Smoke Eaters, on which he played defence. Trail also had some of the best skiing in the vicinity, with many mountains and rivers where he learned to hunt and fish. His summer semester jobs in the local smelter and mines of Cominco Ltd. provided him with the start to his mining career.

Turning down the opportunity to play with the New York Rangers, Cliff attended the University of British Columbia, financed by a hockey scholarship. In 1956, Cliff graduated with a degree in Mining Engineering. He would go on to have an expansive career in mining over the decades, and is renowned as one of the most accomplished primary resource-based developers anywhere in the world during his time; leading and making successes of large and complex world-class business ventures throughout much of the world, spanning Canada, Asia, Africa, and Europe. Cliff was named the highly respected "Mining Man of the Year" by the Northern Miner in 1984, and again in 1987, an accomplishment for which he was later recognized by Prime Minister Mulroney. 

Cliff began his mining career at Denison Mines Limited, a company for which he would work three times over the course of his career and eventually become president. For over ten years, Cliff also worked for International Nickel Company in Canada, Australia and Indonesia.  In 1971, Cliff moved to Ireland to develop Europe's largest lead-zinc mine owned by Tara Mines. Cliff would go on to form Curragh Resources in 1985 and successfully re-opened the Cypress Anvil zinc and nickel mine in the Yukon. In 1989 Cliff was particularly proud of being made an Honorary

Chief of the Kaska Dena Nation, which awarded him the name 'Ano Sede', meaning 'man who travels afar'. This honour was bestowed upon Cliff after Curragh entered into a joint venture to develop the Sa Dena Hes lead and zinc mine in the Yukon, which extended to the Kaska Dena Nation business, employment and trading relating to this venture. Further along in his career, he formed and  owned several resource-based companies in Canada, which included Ontzinc, Frame Mining, Silvermet and Global Uranium. Cliff also sat on the board of directors of several companies and provided expertise advice and consulting to many others.

In 2007 Cliff established the ' Clifford H. Frame Sustainable Mining and Processing Engineering Endowment' fund at the University of British Columbia in support of mining engineering-related activities and programmes at the university. He was also a guest lecturer at McGill University.

Cliff was a member of the Thompson Chapter of the Masonic Lodge of Manitoba for more than fifty years and a contributing member of Rameses Shrine.

Whenever possible, Cliff continued to hunt and fish, primarily in the Canadian North and Alaska.  He particularly enjoyed canoe and fishing trips with his wife and friends. He skied into his eighties, typically at his favourite skiing destination in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Until his final days he was delighted to be living on his working farm in Uxbridge where he raised Black Angus cattle. It was where he loved to be and, over the years, where he enjoyed countless visits from his loving family and friends. In his heart, Cliff was always a true family man, a loving husband, a committed father, and a doting grandfather. He will be profoundly missed.

Visitation will be held at the Low and Low Funeral Home, 1763 Reach Street, Port Perry (905-985-7331) on Sunday, May 26, 2019 from 6:00 – 9: 00 p.m. The Funeral Service will be held at Trinity United Church, 20 First Ave, Uxbridge, on Monday, May 27, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. with visitation beginning at 10:00 a.m. Immediately following the service, Cliff will be laid to rest in Uxbridge Cemetery.

LINDSAY, Kevin

May 9, 1995 - January 23, 2019

Port Perry Chapel

It breaks our hearts to inform you all of the sudden passing of Kevin James Lindsay. Born May 9th, 1995. Graduating from Port Perry High School and continuing his education at York University and OCAD. He was a man of many passions. An avid reader, deeply interested in literature as well as worldly events, involving history, geography, science, politics, people and poetry. A lover of all music, his mind was open to hear all sounds of the world. Heavily inspired by Frank Zappa, this is what brought him to understand technical performance. He was a talented musician; a passionate drummer who played the skins like no one else. There was never a dull moment so long as there was music to listen to. Art is one of the passions that made him love life. From photography to painting, Kevin had an extremely unique approach. All of his work was done with dedication, time, and precision. As a result each piece was a masterpiece. Think of Vincent Van Gogh. This was a man Kevin spoke of often and drew much inspiration from. And lastly he fell in love with film. This was a passion from the beginning. When film is mentioned think not of a classic Hollywood flic, directors such as Passolini and Kuro-sawa were his inspiration. Films that touched on a more obscure view, he collected and took care of, to preserve and reference. He was a man with knowledge beyond his years and was greatly interested in sharing what he learned with anyone that would listen. Kevin was a very gentle, well spoken man. He had a wry outlandish sense of humor, good natured with a big beautiful heart who loved his family and especially his best friend Autumn. Full of energy and intelligence, there was something special in his eyes. He is someone to never forget and would only want us to learn what he has learnt, live with love in our hearts, and kindness as our intention to treat others.

Beloved and cherished, Kevin is survived by his loving partner Autumn Saunders, Brian and Cathy Lindsay (parents), Morgan Lindsay (sister), Neville and Tiffany Saunders (In-laws), Arielle Saunders (sister in-law), Ray and Donna Laughlen (grandparents), Ruth Foote (Nana), Ken Darlington (great-grandfather), and many Aunts, Uncles and cousins.

Please join us in celebrating this brilliant man’s life, and to love and remember him, on Sunday February 10th, 2019 from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm, followed by a time of sharing, where you are invited to share stories, and memories of Kevin. If Desired, Memorial Donations to The New Animal Shelter for Uxbridge-Scugog would be appreciated by the family. Send Condolence

WOODWARD, M. Jean

Port Perry Chapel

Peacefully at Lakeridge Health Port Perry on Thursday, January 10, 2019, Margaret Jean Woodward passed away from Mesothelioma. Jean is survived by her beloved husband of 67 years, Grantley Thomas Woodward; their children Judith Ann Peshal (Steven), Jane Elizabeth Woodward Michalak, Susan Lynn Jones (David) and William Grantley Woodward. Cherished grandmother of Stephanie Richardson (Tom), Kristi Honey (Tom), Matthew Peshal (Sarah), Lindsay Schuster (Andrew), David Jones (Kim), Elizabeth Taylor (Brad), Sarah Holt (Spencer), Jacqueline Fortner (Randy), Rachel Woodward, Gregory Woodward and Michael Woodward. Loving great-grandmother of Trisha and Megan Lee, Ella and Grantley Honey, Kaylin Harris, Steven, Nolan and Nathan Peshal, Ronan, Greta and Hugh Jones, Makenna and Goldie Taylor, Xavier Holt and Katelyn Fortner. Jean is predeceased by her parents William Stocks Newsome and Mary Ann Newsome, sister Betty Hill and brother Bill Newsome.

Jean was born in Weston, Ontario. After being raised and educated in Weston and England, Jean began her career as an elementary teacher. After marrying the love of her life, Grantley, and raising their four children and many foster children, Jean returned to the classroom. Her love for her family, friends and the community were hallmarks of Jean’s life. Never once wanting to be in the spotlight, Jean was an exemplary teacher, active church and UCW member, community volunteer at the school breakfast program and in Canterbury Commons. She took pride in hosting luncheons for her friends, former schoolmates, Christmas open houses, Couples Club, weekends at the cottage, family reunions and events. Despite developing macular degeneration, which left her legally blind, Jean continued to volunteer making phone calls to invalids to boost their spirits. As a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Jean’s love and support were felt by all. Not a birthday, anniversary, graduation, recital, holiday went by without her remembering or attending. Her never ending love, dedication and care of Grantley was obvious to all. Jean had a wonderful life. We are all blessed to have shared our lives with her.

Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,

But remember me in every tomorrow.

Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,

I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,

My going has eased my hurt

And given me relief

So dry your eyes and remember me

Not as I am now, but as I used to be.

Because, I will remember you all,

and look on with a smile.

Understand in your hearts,

I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

As long as I have the love of each of you,

I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

~ Remember Me, by Joey Beighley
