After retiring she and Walter moved from Prescott to Ompah where they were active members of the Ompah Conservation Association. She loved nature and enjoyed watching the wildlife on her Ompah property. Muriel was a true sports fan at heart. She especially loved hockey, baseball and figure skating. She loved a good game of cards, bingo and the sound of the winning slot machine at the casino. We shall miss her sense of humour, warmth and wisdom. Our thanks goes out to those who cared for her during her illness. Special thanks to Dr. Iliescu and the amazing team at the Bayshore Renal Clinic, the Bayshore Homecare staff and the wonderful kind and caring staff at the Brockville General Hospital.

Peacefully at the Perth Hospital, in his 95th year, with all his family at his side. Beloved husband of 63 years to JoAnne, father of Stephen, Nancy, Richard (Wanda); grandfather of Coleman (Jenn) and Erika (Joe); great grandfather of Lyla Jo and Samuel Roy Hamilton. Survived by sister Lyla (late Mac), brother Arland (Jean). Predeceased by parents Ira Leslie and Jennie Benn, infant brother Clifford, and sister Theda (late John). Roy will be greatly missed by his wonderful nieces, nephews, cousins, and their families. He was a great friend to many through his life, and enjoyed nothing better than a crowd to entertain, a Scotch to savour, a story to tell, and a song to sing. Roy was a dairy farmer, an avid gardener, a hunter, trapper and fisherman. a Parham Oddfellow’s member for over 70 years, a member of the Sharbot Lake Lion’s Club and also belonged to numerous local and county organizations. The hunting camp at Granite Lake was a place of special importance, and will continue to be so for all of his hunting gang. Listen for his voice when the loons return to Long Lake this spring. Roy always said that he would like to come back as a loon so that he could yell and fish all day. For those of us lucky enough to have known this amazing man, the call of the loon will always hold special meaning. At Roy’s request a graveside service will be held this spring, “when the leaves are coming out on the trees”. Online condolences at Pickett, Micajah Erskine, III goodfellowsfuneralhome.com.

“There was a little girl who had a little curl Right in the middle of her forehead And when she was good she was very very good And when she was bad she was horrid!” (Author unknown but much appreciated)
Junie took her last breath gently and peacefully at St. Joseph’s Villa in Sudbury with her two daughters holding her hand. The last chapter now written and the last page now turned of the marvellous adventure book, “Life of Junie”. The chapters spanned some 87 years most of which were set in Ottawa and her beloved Valley.
Junie was predeceased by: caring husbands Herb Lovesey and Winton Roberts, wonderful parents George and Beulah Dent, loving siblings Mildred (Jim Hutchins), John (Laurette), much loved nephews Jim Hutchins(Barbara), Ted Hutchins and cousins Jerry, Harris, Wallace and Kenny Brading.
Junie will live on in the hearts and memories of her daughters, Leah Lovesey Lepage (Rob Lepage) of Sudbury, Ontario and Sandra Lovesey (Mark Holden) of Dallas, Texas. She is also survived by five adoring grandchildren: Rory, Rebecca, Patrick, Kelly and Danny. Also mourned by her lifelong BFF (Best Friend Forever) Connie Menzies and dear sister-in-law Norma Miller, nieces Marlyn Hutchins, Betty Pinsent (Andy) as well as many good friends, neighbours and cousins scattered throughout the Ottawa Valley.
Our Junie was many things throughout her life:
A true child of the Depression- a stockpiler of supplies and treasures
Small but mighty insisting life unfold always on her terms
Spicy, not too sweet
Shirley Temple cute then Audrey Hepburn glam
A ballerina, gymnast, skier, paddler
A hitchhiker on train cabooses to school
A rebel- because school could not hold her - she would skip class to do something more exciting! Life was calling.
A fashion buyer for Devlins and Morgans Department stores then
An interior decorator then
A sheep farmer’s wife then
A provider of comfort and much joy to many seniors then came retirement
A community volunteer, church worker, political activist and world traveller
An amazing listener, a keeper of secrets and a great friend to many
A wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, gramma,
A remarkable woman and to the end, a powerful force of nature.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to the staff at St Joseph’s Villa, Gardenway wing in Sudbury for their exceptional professionalism and compassion in Mom’s last difficult years; the staff at Carolina Suites in Perth for the wonderful care; and a very special thanks to Dr. Jane Cox who stepped in at several timely junctures in Mom’s life to dispense her excellent medical care and kindness.
So long Junie Prunie.
Farewell to the Princess of Palmerston.
We all hope that God has taken his multi-vitamins!
A celebration of Junie’s exceptional life will take place on Saturday May 12, 2018 at 1:00 pm at her home in Ompah on the shores of her beautiful lake followed by a gathering at the Ompah firehall. All of Junie’s people are welcome for some music, memories and honouring a life well lived.
If you’re interested in making a donation in June’s memory, please consider St. Joseph’s Villa in Sudbury or the Alzheimer’s Association.
Peacefully at home on Friday December 15, 2017 in her 75th year. Beloved wife of Alan Flynn. Dear mother of Brett, Brigitte Howes (Ron). Grandmother of Ryan (Pascale), Ben (Averie) and Carson. Sister of Laura, Cheryl, Augusta, Nancy, Bill. Predeceased by sister Betty. Special thanks to Nurses Melanie and Leeane from CBI. Thank you to caregiver Linda from Saint Elizabeth.
