MARGARET WALL

 

Margaret Rosetta Wall (née Tucker) passed away peacefully at Tiverton Park Manor on Monday, March 20, 2017, in her 91st year.

 

Margaret, the last surviving child of Albert and Rosetta Tucker, was predeceased by siblings: Thomas, Harry and Peter Tucker, Gweneth Buckingham and Betty Lampman; as well as by her daughter Susan Wall.

 

Left behind to mourn her passing is her son Ian Wall of Kincardine, son-in-law Chris Radley-Walters of Georgetown, seven grandchildren: Sarah, Caitlin, Cairis, Phaedre, Lilly, Estelle, and Rowan; and great-grandson Huxley.

 

Also missed by many nieces, nephews and cousins.

 

After graduating from the Stratford School of Nursing in 1948, Margaret set upon the early career as a stewardess for Trans Canada Airlines. Following her marriage in 1957 and a brief period living in Montreal, the majority of her nursing career was spent at Peel Memorial Hospital in Brampton.

 

She retired to her home town of Kincardine, where she led a very private life. There she devoted her time to her family and pets and always maintained her belief of enjoying and maintaining the welfare of nature in our chaotic world.

 

Always an avid CBC listener, Margaret remained aware and interested in world events to the end.  With her ever-clear mind, she enjoyed discussing and offering opinion on the world as she saw it.

 

In the interests of leaving a small personal carbon footprint, while advancing science and medicine for future generations, Margaret’s wish was to donate her body to the Schulich School of Medicine at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario.

 

The family expresses a most sincere thank you to the staff at Tiverton Park Manor who worked hard at providing excellent comfort and care to Margaret over the past three months, and to Dr. Thomson who provided medical care to Margaret for many years.

 

At Margaret’s request, there will be no service of remembrance. In lieu of flowers, donations to Margaret’s favourite charity, the David Suzuki Foundation, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.

RICHARD YUN

Surrounded by those he loved, Richard Yun passed away peacefullyin Kincardine on March 17, 2017.

Richard’s wife Karen and sons Michael and David have appreciated and continue to cherish the outpouring of support from friends and family who have travelled this journey with them.

Knowing his time was limited, Richard made the most of it, spending time with his mother Gail Yun, his sisters Susan, Sharon and Sandra, along with his nieces Natasha, Elizabeth, Abby and Jacqueline. This group of wonderful women let Richard (Jr.) pretend he was the head of the family after his father Richard K.S. Yun passed away in 2009.

Richard’s in-laws: Stewart and Phyllis Pfohl, GordPfohl and Charon Kerr with nephews Damon and Callum, and Ann and John Thomas with niece Julia, have all been a huge support.

In addition to his father, Richard is predeceased by his nephew Robin.

Those who have known Richard will know that he has been involved in many activities and organizations during his lifetime including, but in no way limited to, training new hires in the nuclear industry; coaching trainers; serving on school councils; operating a small business in town; serving on the Four County Labour Market Planning Board; co-ordinating the site for the Kincardine Scottish Festival and Highland Games; mentoring Team 781 -the Kinetic Knights robotics team; and running workshops for teachers, executives, at-risk youth and basically anyone who asked. He has even been on stage with the Kincardine Theatre Guild, but avoided singing parts; he had a knack for hitting notes that have not been invented yet.

Since you may guess who had a hand in writing his own obituary, please do not be sad about what was lost but happy that we had it to start with. Richard lived life. He not only seized the day but each hour of every day with a drive to be helpful, to make things better and to see the good in situations. We can honour him by carrying on these goals.

In keeping with his passion for learning, Richard donated his body to science where it can be used to further our knowledge in the hopes that others will benefit.

A celebration of life has been arranged where people can eat, listen to music and share stories. The celebration of life will be held from 1-4 p.m. at the Kincardine Pavilion on Saturday, May 6, 2017, with a time of remembrance starting at 2p.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Women’s House Serving Bruce & Grey, Team 781 Kinetic Knights, a local Home and School Association or a charity of your choice.Portrait and memorial available online at www.daveylinklaterfuneralhome.com.
