Gill, Mary

Mary Gill of Bowmanville passed away at Strathaven Lifecare Centre on Sunday September 28, 2014 at the age of 95.
Mary was born in rural Saskatchewan to Anna Klus from Poland and Michael Kowal from Eastern Ukraine. When she was 5 years old, her mother died leaving 4 children: Mary, Kathrine, John and Joseph. Mary and her 3 siblings developed a wonderful bond that lasted their lifetimes. They supported each other emotionally and took many holidays together. Later their father married Helena Romaniuk.
Mary attended Normal School in Saskatoon and became a teacher. She taught at St Joseph’s School, a two room school near Jasmin, Saskatchewan. There she met and fell in love with Robert Gill, an ambitious young man from a local farm.
Mary and Bob were married in Barrie, Ontario in June of 1941. After Bob finished a short stint in the army, they started a family and began their careers as entrepreneurs. First they purchased a corner store with a gas pump and resident black bear in Chelmsford, Ontario. In 1949 they moved to Geraldton, Ontario where they bought the local Dairy. In 1954 they moved south to Bowmanville to buy the Royal Theatre. Much later they partnered with their son Irving, in the Port Darlington Marina and Hotel in Bowmanville. For many years, Mary also worked as a teller in the Bowmanville CIBC. She was known for her precision with numbers and for her diligence. Mary and Bob worked hard but took time to see the world. They enjoyed several cruises and also traveled to Europe, China, Cuba and Australia. A home in Florida provided a retreat from their busy lives. They eventually retired in Newcastle Ontario.
Mary was an astute business woman and very creative in all the family businesses. She was an active member of the Bowmanville Business and Professional Women’s Club. She also was an excellent bridge player.
Mary had unlimited energy and enthusiasm and took tap dancing lessons with her daughters and learned to play the Hawaiian guitar and the saxophone. And who will ever forget her license plate “Big Wig”?
Mary spent her last years in Strathaven Lifecare Centre where she loved to have family and friends visit.
Mary was predeceased by the love of her life, Bob, in 1998 after 57 years of marriage. Her dear sister Kae Lang and brother Joe Kowal died in 2005 and 2012 respectively. Her grandson Jeff Martin died in 2004. Her brother John passed away only recently, on September 20.
Mary is survived by her children Irv (Mary Lou Marr), Dixie (Robert Jones), and Pat (Derek Martin). Her sister-in-law, Anne, lives in Richmond BC. She also leaves behind, 9 Grandchildren, 9 Great Grandchildren and 4 Great Great Grandchildren all of whom she was immensely proud. She was a favorite 'Aunt Mary’ to many nieces and nephews on Vancouver Island. British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and also Virginia. Her cats, Simba and Susie were special to her.
Mary’s children would like to thank Carrie Gill, Ron Shields, Audrey Stephen, Dr Kassirer and the staff of Strathaven Lifecare Centre for their care and kindness to their mother.

Mary will be cremated and her ashes will be buried alongside Bob’s ashes at St George’s Cemetery. A private celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

Her family is saddened, but relieved that she is now free of pain. Molly spent the last ten weeks of her life under the excellent care of the medical staff in the Bowmanville Hospital.

Our heartfelt thanks to those who provided much love and comfort by spending many hours at mom’s bedside during her difficult last weeks.

Molly was born on February 3, 1921 in Niagara Falls, Ontario and was preceded in death by her husband George in 1983, parents Duncan & Helen White and sisters Peggy and Betty.

Survivors include her daughters Marcella and Gail (Randy). Also survived by grandchildren Rachel, Liam, Luke (Lindsay), Duncan (Christine), Lauren (Jeff), and all their families, including seven great grandchildren Mason, McKenna, Mara, Morgan; Keegan; Grace & Levi. She also leaves behind nieces, nephews and friends.

Cremation has taken place and burial will occur later in September in Thorold at Lakeview Cemetery. There will be a Celebration of Life at the Porter Farm (Luke & Lindsay’s) at 92 6th Line, Fraserville (just south of Peterborough, east off of Hwy 28) on Sunday September 28 from 2 – 4 pm. Please join Molly’s family and friends to share in our collective memories. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. John’s Anglican Church, Bowmanville or a Charity of your Choice would be appreciated, and may be done through NORTHCUTT ELLIOTT FUNERAL HOME 53 Division St. N.

Zavagno, David Joseph

David Joseph Zavagno, aged 70, of Clarington,
passed away at home on Saturday August 16, 2014.

Dave was born in Toronto, Ontario on January 12, 1944. He attended New Toronto High School and began his working career as a draftsman. He moved into manufacturing and worked as a purchaser for Jacuzzi, then for Stanley. Finally he entered into a partnership to set up Steelwood Doors and served as Vice President of Manufacturing until his retirement in 2002.

Dave enjoyed drawing, designing and building whimsical gifts, renovating, maintaining the grounds of his property, and collecting and restoring antiques. Every project he completed with his own special blend of creativity and attention to detail. He appreciated music, architecture, art, woodcarving, stand-up comedy, "rat rods", fine cuisine, and a good bottle of wine. He also loved a succession of Irish Wolfhounds.

David was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December 2012 and spent the next twenty months fighting it in every way he could. During this time he bought a "rat rod" and helped to direct its rebuilding, then discovered "Steampunk" and began designing and building industrial-style lamps. He led everyone who loved him throughout the journey with optimism and bravery. Dave had a true heart and loved unconditionally.

Dave is survived by his wife, Ann (nee Webb), first wife, Sandra (nee Sills), children: Julie, Aimee, Maggie (Lee), Lee (Mel), Connal (Jen) and Quinn, sisters: Tina (Ray) and Gina (Glen), and brother, Jerry (Pat). He also leaves behind nieces Grace, Lindsay, Bonnie and Kelly; nephews Galen, Gideon, Connor and Paul. Dave was predeceased by his mother Inez (nee Ongaro) and father, Guiseppe (Joe).

Invitations will be sent for a private memorial gathering to be held sometime in September. Memorial donations may be made in Dave's name to the Irish Wolfhound Club of Canada Rescue or the Princess Margaret Hospital.
