BRUCE CAMPBELL BARRINGTON
It is with sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of Campbell Barrington on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at the Wenleigh Long Term Care, after enjoying 94 years of a full and happy life.
He was the beloved husband of 62 years to Kathleen (Stoner) who predeceased him and dear father to Josephine, Sandra Ballios (William) and David (Sheila). He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren, Brian and Laura Ballios, and Catherine and Stephanie Barrington.
Cam was born and raised in Toronto. A graduate in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto (1945), Cam had a long and distinguished career as Mill Manager in the pulp and paper industry with both Abitibi and McMillan Bloedel in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, before retiring to North Bay. He served his community as both school trustee and as a member of the Board of Governors of Canadore College as well as having been an active participant in fundraising for the North Bay Hospital and other local charities. He enjoyed an active life in Northern Ontario fishing, partridge hunting, crosscountry skiing and spending time with so many good friends. Cam left the north seven years ago after Kathleen's death to join his children in Mississauga.
The family wishes to extend gratitude to his caregivers and staff at the Wenleigh. Special thanks to Dr. Bernard Goldfarb of North Bay and Dr. Tom Short of Credit Valley Hospital for extending his life 14 years after battling cancer.

ETHEL COLE March 6, 2018
At 92, with her tennis racquet in hand, her skis on her shoulder, and a French book in her handbag, Ethel has left us. She was an extraordinary person and lived an extraordinary life. She enjoyed and lived fully each and every day.

ELSIE M. WHATLEY
Elsie May Whatley passed away peacefully at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre on Thursday, March 1, 2018 in her 96th year. Beloved wife and best friend of the late John Whatley (d. 2010), Mum will be dearly missed by her children, Donald (Natalie) of Mississauga, Joan Priestman (John) of Kelowna, Richard (Martha) of Lakefield and Gordon (Sherry) of Halifax.
Cherished grandma of Alison and Gregory Priestman; Jennifer Cartwright (Richard) and the late Alex Whatley (d.2009); and Ben (Caitlin), Ian (Brittany), Graeme (Christina), and Julia Whatley. Also loving great-grandma ("GG") to Andrew and Daniel Cartwright.
Dear sister of Ruth Repp (Al). Also missed by her sister-in-law, Joy (Ron). Elsie will always be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews in Western Canada.
Predeceased by her parents, Arthur and Viola Johnson; and her brothers, Ronald and Wray (Evelyn) Johnson.
More than anything, it was Elsie's positive approach that drew people to her and inspired love and admiration in everyone she met.
Her over-the-top-laugh, sense of fairness, ability to listen, apple pie and butter tarts, and love for family were legendary. Elsie's children depended on her wisdom and counsel, and her grandchildren each enjoyed a deep and unique bond with her. From the age of six, it was music that tied the strands of her life together, a passion that ultimately led to her achieving an ARCT in Piano Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music the year she turned eighty. It is difficult to imagine a world without Elsie in it. Members of her beloved family feel blessed to have had her in their lives for as long as they did, and will hold her in their hearts forever.
A funeral service will be held at the Hendren Funeral Homes, Lakefield Chapel, 66 Queen Street, Lakefield on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Visitation 2 hours prior to the service. A reception will follow in the Heritage Room of the Funeral Home. Interment at Hillside Cemetery, Lakefield.
Memorial donations may be made to Parkinson Society Canada or Autism Ontario as expressions of sympathy, and may be made by contacting the funeral home at http://www.hendrenfuneralhome.com or by calling 706-652-3355.
