July 26, 1922 – February 19, 2020
Husband of the Late Nellie (Grightmire), brother of the Late Helene Kokovay, father of Esther Morgan (Franklin), David (Susan) and Paul (Karen), grandchildren Peter Morgan (Mary), Sarah Donaldson (Brian), Karen Morgan-Bowyer (Robert), Deren Sentesy (Akiko), Mark Sentesy (Maureen), Rowan Sentesy (Alice), Ira Sentesy (Oy), Andrea Sentesy (Aaron), Jeremy Walker, Stephanie Walker and 15 great-grandchildren. A member of Dundas Baptist Church for more than 70 years. Lou was a tenor singer in many choirs and choruses. Lou, a Hungarian immigrant who came to Canada as a child and tragically orphaned at 13, overcame many obstacles and was a self made man who loved his Canadian home. He was a mechanical, (heating, plumbing, electrical) draftsman during his working life. Always generous and optimistic about life, he loved his community and gave generously to many causes. The old guy who got around Dundas on his red scooter in his red hat, proudly flying the Canadian flag on the back was a fixture to one and all. Friends will be received by the family on Sunday afternoon and evening from 2-4 and 7-9 at the Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main Street Dundas. Lou’s Service will take place on Monday at 10:30 a.m. at the DUNDAS BAPTIST CHURCH, 201 Governor’s Road, Dundas. Interment at Grove Cemetery. Lou supported many charitable causes. We suggest the St. Joseph’s Villa Foundation (where he lived for several years), Dundas Baptist Church, or your favourite charity in remembrance of Lou.

December 22, 1931 – February 7, 2020
Heaven is a brighter place. Embraced by her loving family, on February 7, 2020 Adelia (Velenosi) Settimi, in her 89th year, was reunited with her husband Frank. Loving and devoted mother of Ann Marie and Angelo Vecchi, and Perry and Pieta Settimi. Most adored Nonni of Lisa and Dave Kowalyk, Julie and Billy Hall, Nicole Settimi, Cathleen Settimi and Aaron Michon. Proud and cherished Granny of Anthony, Dylan, Sabrina, and Elena. Adelia was born December 22, 1931 to Sestina and Pietro Velenosi in Rosara, Ascoli Piceno, Italy. She moved to Canada in 1950 where, through mutual friends, she met her beloved husband Frank. They were married almost 65 years when Frank passed away in 2019. Her first job in Canada was working for St. Joseph’s Hospital in the surgical supply unit putting kits together for surgeons. She also worked for Windsor Wafers. Adelia was very proud to volunteer at St. Joseph’s Hospital. She then decided to focus all her efforts on raising their adored children, Ann Marie and Perry. Adelia’s greatest treasures were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She affectionately called them her “Toadies” as she gave them her “raspberry kisses”. She loved creating memories with them like playing cards and painting nails, and also teaching them to cook and bake. They will miss Nonni’s specialities like gnocchi, vingigrasse (a lasagne-style dish from Le Marche), stuffed olives, and her lemon cookies and toasted cookies. We have visions of the miles and miles of home-made pasta drying all over the house. No one ever left Nonni’s hungry. Adelia had a quiet strength and was a devout Catholic. Those who knew her called her a sweetheart for she had such a kind and loving heart. She made you feel special. She enjoyed spending time with people whether over a cup of coffee, or catching up by telephone. Adelia also loved to sing and dance. We hope that she is dancing again. Predeceased by her siblings and their spouses Amelio and Emidia Velenosi, Filippo and Wilma Velenosi, Maria and Ernesto Giorgi, Elena and Pietro Cicchi, Peter Velenosi, and her twin brother Leone Velenosi. Remembered by her sisters-in-law Elisa Velenosi and Verniece Anderson-Pay. Dear sister-in-law of Mario (deceased) and Maria Settimi, Giuseppe (deceased) and Rita Settimi, Laurina and Gino (deceased) Latini, Maria and Emilio (deceased) Cesarini, Ruggiero and Annie Settimi, Pierina and Valentino (deceased) Pascucci, and Ottavio and Vincenza Settimi. Adelia will be missed and forever loved by all those who had the pleasure to know her. A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Augustine’s Parish, 58 Sydenham Street, Dundas. Interment to follow at Our Lady of Victory Mausoleum at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery. In honour of Adelia’s wishes there will be no visitation or reception.

August 29, 1935 – February 7, 2020
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Colin Parr on February 7, 2020 at age 84. Colin is survived by his wife, eldest son and daughter and their spouses. Colin was a caring and modest man who took pride in his family and was always quick to offer a meal to those who came over, whether they were people or pets. Colin had a talent for math (although he’d never acknowledge it). He also had a life long love of golf, food, and music that kept him occupied long after he retired from Stelco. In his later years, he also became fond of striking up conversations with people whenever he went out for a coffee or a walk. Although many may not have known his name, they may notice his absence. Colin is greatly missed. We hope that, wherever he is, he get’s the rest he deserves and that he feels all the love that we are sending him now and forever. A celebration of Colin’s life will be held on Saturday, February 15th from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St. Dundas. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the charity of your choice.
Passed away peacefully at St. Peter’s Residence at Chedoke on February 5, 2020 in his 99th year. Beloved husband of the late Sophie (nee Koczan). Loving father of Patricia (Ron) Greenwood, Allan (Gwen), and Robert. Caring grandfather to Jennifer, Jim, Dan, Kris, Karla and great-grandfather to Cecily, Katie, Ty, Meg, Sammi, Dray, Austin, Eden, Lauren, Elaina. Norm was born and raised in Hamilton. He joined the RCAF during W.W.II and spent a rather peaceful term stationed in Newfoundland. When he returned to Hamilton, he met beautiful Sophie and fell in love with her light heartedness and enthusiasm. After they were married, he worked at various jobs but eventually retrained for a career as a draftsman, which he always regarded as a well chosen move. He was a man who believed he could build or fix almost anything and proceeded to do so with consistent success. He enjoyed mulling over problems and finding innovative (and inexpensive) solutions. He loved photography and cameras and even had a brief and pleasurable few years making stained glass creations. Norm was known for his dry wit and clever sense of humour. He was also an avid reader – a self described lover of words and information. He spent many hours in his senior years browsing and reading on the internet, sometimes even buying new computers just because they were interesting challenges. He will be missed. Friends and family are invited to Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St, Dundas, on Saturday, March 7th from 2 – 4p.m. for a Celebration of Life. Interment to take place at a later date. Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society
