Doris raised her children at home for 17 years before entering the workforce at Sears Canada, HGR Carpets and the School of Developmentally Handicapped Children at Humber College, where she was much loved by both children and staff. She was a charter member of the Westway Bridge Club in Etobicoke for over 50 years, where she enjoyed a close relationship with all the members.

 

She was known for her welcoming and generous hospitality and for her delicious home-cooking and baking. She was talented with her hands, and especially loved to sew and knit. Upon retirement, she and Bob enjoyed relaxing winters in Florida where they developed new friendships. Home was Inverhuron, where Doris felt blessed to be surrounded by the lake, the beach, neighbours, friends and family.

 

The family is grateful to the Rev. Rob Hiscox for his visits over the years, and for leading her funeral and celebration of life.

DONALD WEATHERHEAD

 

Donald Cameron Weatherhead of Kincardine passed peacefully away at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre - Kincardine on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2017, in his 83rd year.

 

Dear son of the late Lula Weatherhead.

 

Dear cousin of Bryan (Lisa) Walden of London, Michael (Gail) Walden and Dale (Jill) Walden, all of Kincardine, and Bonnie and Rick Weatherhead.

 

Also missed by his many friends at Community Living.

 

Predeceased by his grandparents Louis and Charlotte Weatherhead, aunts Norma Weatherhead, Grace (Eric) Walden and uncle Richard (Pearl) Weatherhead

 

Donald lived the first part of his life in St. Helens, later moving to Lucknow. He would often be seen riding his bike around Lucknow and was well-known in the community.

 

In 2000, at the age of 66, Donald moved to Kincardine and quickly adapted to a very social life in the community, assisted by the team at Community Living (CLKD). Donald enjoyed swimming, bowling, literacy programs and track and field. He worked for several years in Kincardine, picking up mail and running errands for businesses. He regularly attended services at the Kincardine United Church. He loved to walk and would often be seen at the car wash, talking to people as they waited their turn to use the bays.

 

Donald’s passion was trucks - particularly vintage trucks - and he would take any opportunity that was offered to him to go for a truck ride. He was a regular at Kincardine’s “Drift In Cruise Nights”. His curiosity knew no limits. He constantly wanted to understand how things worked. In the past couple of years, he learned how to search the Internet for videos on driving, trucks and basically anything that contained some mechanical content. Donald approached life with passion, a desire to get out and explore and a curiosity that taught him something new each and every day.

 

His life was greatly enriched by the support he received from the staff at CLKD and from the congregation at Kincardine United Church. Thank you to the staff at Kincardine Hospital for the care and comfort he received in the past weeks.

 

A funeral service will be held at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, 757 Princes Street, Kincardine at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 21, 2017.

 

Spring interment South-Kinloss Cemetery.
