From the Montreal Gazette:
OOSTERHOFF, Lucile (Brind)
April 3, 1927 (Toronto)
June 19, 2019 (Montreal)
Lu died peacefully on June 19, 2019 at her home in the Maxwell Residence in Baie D’Urfe, Quebec. She was surrounded by loved ones. Lu’s focus was her family. Lu was a devoted wife to Tom for 68 years; a mother to Peter, Mike (Cathy), John, and Jan (Brian). She loved her grandchildren Yonda, Kayla, Cody, Stella, Shane, Mira, and Riley. She was proud to be a great-grandmother to Abi, Mattie, Jackson, Evelyn and Orla. Lu was fortunate to have Bill as her loving companion for the last two years of her life. Lu’s open heart and caring ways were a trademark, she was a friend to everyone who entered her life. Well known for her hugs, Lu loved and was loved by all. Starting the volunteer program at Beaconsfield High School, Lu worked as a career counsellor for 20 years. She was an advocate for youth, especially teenagers. Many called her “Mom O”. Lu will be deeply missed. Her enthusiasm for life will live on through all that knew her. Visitation at the Collins Clarke MacGillivray White Funeral Home on Saturday, June 29 from 2:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. A Memorial Service will follow (222 Hwy 20, Pointe-Claire, QC, H9S 3X6). Lu loved colors so please dress as colorfully as possible in honor of Lu’s vibrant life. It was Lu’s wish for donations to be made to Foster Parents Plan, Canada.
Sadly, our brother John has died at age 68. Son of George and Emma Flemming of Beaconsfield, now deceased. Brother of Peter Flemming (Norma) of Guelph and Penny Patten (Richard) of Ottawa. Uncle to Timothy and Chantelle. Many Mitton and Flemming cousins in New Brunswick, across Canada and U.S.
John excelled in school and sports. He played football (fullback and middle linebacker) and hockey with passion and enjoyed many friends while attending Beaconsfield High School. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree at University of New Brunswick and graduated in 1972.
John had the support of wonderful caregivers from West Island Health and Social Services, as he suffered from mental illness. In the past two years he was in long term care at Centre Denis-Benjamin Viger. Thankyou to the staff on the 2nd floor who became John’s caring family.
John will be buried in June at the McLaren Cemetery in Wakefield, Quebec. Donations in John’s memory: Denis-Benjamin Viger FOUNDATION – specify the 2nd floor. 3292 Cherrier Blvd., L’Ile Bizard, PQ H9C 1E4.
LYON, Judy Fraser 1946 – 2018 We are sad to announce the death of Judy Fraser Lyon on October 18, 2018 after a brief illness. Judy was born in Montreal and raised in Pointe-Claire. She leaves behind her loving husband Michael and much-loved daughter Anna, as well as her dear Aunt Jean and many Allo family members out west. Judy was a teacher at Beaconsfield High School for 30 years, an active paddler at the Pointe-Claire Canoe Club, and talented member of several art groups. An avid reader, she was also a book club member, with at least one book always “in progress” at home. The love of exploring the natural world she shared with Michael took them on many trips around Europe and North America. Judy’s positive nature, her quiet wit and readiness to help out gained the respect and fondness of both her science students and acquaintances from her diverse activities. In her personal and professional life, the friendships she made remained life-long. A memorial service for Judy will take place at Cedar Park United Church, 204 Lakeview Avenue in Pointe-Claire at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, October 30. Thanks to the staff at the Royal Victoria Hospital and West Island Palliative Care Residence. Donations in her memory to the Cedars Cancer Centre of the MUHC would be appreciated.
