Beloved wife of the late Donald Francis McKee, and predeceased by her eldest son William(Bill) Mckee(Anna). Also predeceased by loving husband Leo Walsh. Joan worked as a secretary when she met our Dad. Upon becoming a Mom, she stayed home devoting all her time and love to her family, raising four children. Mom was a huge sports fan, although hockey was her favourite. It’s the only time she would ever cut a phone call short saying “The games on! Can I call you back?” It was such a privilege to have her as our Mom. She had an enormous heart and was always there with words of encouragement. She never missed a chance to watch her children and grandchildren shine no matter what it was. Always encouraging us to go after our dreams. She was immensely proud of her family, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. She will forever hold a special place in our hearts that no one we ever fill. Friends and Family are invited to Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St, Dundas on Thursday, September 23 from 6 until 9p.m. A Funeral Mass will take place at St. Augustine’s Church, 58 Sydenham St, Dundas, on Friday, September 24, at 10:00a.m.

With heavy hearts the Sanche family announces the passing of our beloved mother Dorothy (Popovich) Sanche at the age of 89. Mom is at peace now. Our Sunshine has passed away in body, but her loving shining spirit will live forever in our memories. Loving mother of 5 children; Debbie, Darlene, Donna (Paul), Mark and Darryl. Daughter to Milan and Tereza Popovich. Sister to 6 siblings. Grandmother to Jason, Tyler, Rene and Josh. Aunt to so many. Loved all, was loved by all. Mom loved her family but was especially close to her mother Tereza (Baba) whom she cared for unselfishly with love, courage and passion for 5 years until her mother passed. Dorothy was caring, a fun-loving spirit with a great sense of humour. Someone her children could talk to with ease and loved each equally. Mom loved animals, the outdoors and travel. Discovered her artistic side later in life. Her gardening and cooking skills were outstanding. Grew up on a farm in Welland and starting work at a very young age throughout the Niagara Region up to age of 49. Her biggest achievement was returning to school at age 50 to become an RNA, then working at Doctors Hospital in Toronto until her retirement. A proud moment for all. Her resilience, strength of character and positive outlook got her through some tough times where she adapted to whatever came her way without complaint. Mom, for everything we shared, the dreams, the laughter and the tears, we love you with a special love that deepened throughout the years. ”You will always be our Sunshine.” The family would like to thank the staff at Shalom Village in Hamilton who cared for mom for the past 7 years. A private visitation will be held on Monday, September 27, 2021 at Turner Funeral Home, Dundas. Burial to follow at Oakwood Cemetery, 10672 Lakeshore Rd, Wainfleet, ON for those who would like to attend at approximately 12:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers memorial donations in Dorothy’s name can be made to the Alzheimer Society.

He was the most devoted husband, best dad and greatest Papa our family could have asked for and he will be forever in our hearts. A private family service will be held at a later date.

There are no words that can truly express the deep sadness and hole left in our hearts and lives with Sean’s sudden passing on Thursday, August 26, 2021. He was the loving husband, best friend and biggest support to Kimberly. He was a incredibly loving, compassionate, patient, outstanding, and unique father to Kalen and Leah, whom he referred to as “the boy” and “the girl” so that one day when his memory was failing they wouldn’t notice. He often told them they were in his top 17 most favorite people.
Sean was the oldest child of Paul and Mary MacMillan of Mount Forest, the annoying but protective brother to Taunia (Mark Neilsen) of Mount Forest, and Amanda (Tyrone Goveas) of Kitchener. He was a great son-in-law to Lyle and Kathy Bender of Mount Forest. He was the supportive brother-in-law to Kelly Bender of Kitchener, and Kevin Bender (Manda) of Holstein. He was a role model for his nephews Jaxsen, Oliver, James, Tyler, Jack and niece Victoria.
Sean started a career as a child and youth worker, then transitioned into teaching, which he always thought would have raised a few eye brows of his former elementary school teachers. Working at St. Francis of Assisi in Guelph, he made an impact as the only male teacher on staff amongst an amazing group of women. He wanted learning to be fun in Grade 4, the “best grade ever”, where each year he tried to convince his students that he had never made a mistake or at least since 1986. Involved in different extracurricular activities, Sean especially enjoyed the excitement of those participating in chess club.
He was a loyal friend to an incredible number of people from curling, da boys from work and MoFo. Individually and in groups they have created ridiculous and crazy memories of time spent together cottaging, curling, golfing, hunting, fishing, attending sporting events and concerts. If asked, Sean would admit to being an encourager, but never the instigator in any of the mischief they found.
A most sincere thank you goes out to our cottage neighbors John and Lillian Ross, and remarkable friends Chris and Lisa Mills, Cliff Moore for their help in our time of need. To our extended family, thank you for your love and support through this most difficult time. Visitation will be held at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St., Dundas Ont. on Thursday September 2nd, from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Covid protocols and masks are required.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to mability.ca, a fund set up to support our friends’ daughter’s journey dealing with cerebral palsy. Alternatively, a charity of your choice would also be appreciated.
A final farewell party will be held at a latter date. Location to be determined.

Caring son to Eric and Beverly (predeceased), brothers Ray (Allison), Ron (Wendy) and sisters Brenda (Michel) and Glenda (Christopher). Larry will be greatly missed by his extended family, including his in-laws many nephews, nieces, friends, and colleagues.
Larry was always committed to living a very active lifestyle and was an avid cyclist and sports enthusiast. He passed on his joy of being active to his children whether he was cycling, coaching hockey or roller blading with his family. He was a very invested Dad who did everything to always be present in his children’s lives.
Larry had many hobbies alongside his active lifestyle and was very inquisitive by nature. He was a “do it yourselfer” on many projects, enjoyed fixing cars, loved music and photography and was fondly known as the family technical guru.
He will always be remembered for his willingness to help others whenever needed and for being a caring and thoughtful person. Larry will be forever missed and live on in our hearts forever.

Stella left us unexpectedly but peacefully, beside the love of her life in beautiful North Bay, Ontario. It is so difficult to capture the force that was Stella in a few sentences, but here goes.
Stella was the wife of Bill for 48 years – a partnership that anyone recognized as full of love, laughs, and true friendship. She was loving mama and mom-in-law to Jessica and BJ, Gemma and Benjamin, and Rebecca and Joseph. She was the loving daughter of her parents (predeceased), Joseph and Agnes Campbell.
An adored nana to five grandchildren: Mia, Will, Anastasia, Gabriel, and Otis; sister and sister-in-law to Brian (predeceased) and Josephine, Gemma and Joao (predeceased), Lorna (predeceased), John and Laima, Alex and Marina, Joseph and Helen, Paul and Lorraine, Mary and Peter, Mike and Jean, and Martin and Terry; and kick-ass aunt to Karen, Janice, and countless beauties from the Campbell Clan. She had friendships that many are not lucky enough to have, bound by respect, trust and a shared lust for life.
Stella made her mark in more ways than one. People wanted to be with her. She was warm. She was loving. She listened. She enjoyed the little things from a good coffee, to baking for her daughters, to turning her music up to 11, to curling up with a book. She was positive, never complaining about all the crap that life can dole out. She wasn’t afraid to say what she thought, but was humble, and never imposed her opinion on others (unless correcting the factual data of a story being told by Bill:). She was a go-to source of reason, and an anchor for her friends and family.
Stella was wiser than they come, and shaped the experiences and learning of family, friends, and students. She really liked teaching young children – a journey she began shortly after arriving in Canada from Scotland at the age of 18. She got such joy from witnessing how little ones behave, think, and go about their day moment to moment. Children in her presence felt safe, secure and loved. She instilled confidence and provided a compass for so many.
Most of all, our Stella led life boldly, on her own terms, truly living it to the fullest. Though she left us too soon, we feel her presence and love all around us. We can only hope to carry her beauty onwards as we move forward in this life.
Darling Stella, in the words of Maya Angelou: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
