BERNICE JANE 'JEANIE' OHLKE
Peacefully in the presence of her family on Friday, January 11, 2013 at the Trillium Centre in her 91st year. Beloved wife of the late R.F. 'Rudy' Ohlke M.D. Loving mother of Bette Flindall, Gordon (Lorraine Tank) and Jane (Joe Favot). Dear grandmother of Julie (David Downs), Kevin (Beth Krein) and Andrew Flindall (Jax Laut), Katie, Charley (Helen Taylor), Lindsay and Lisa Ohlke, and Elizabeth, Caroline and Timothy Favot. Great grandmother of Will and Drew Downs, Michaela Flindall and Alec Flindall. Predeceased by her brothers Cecil and Earl and survived by sister-in-law Joanne Hanna. Daughter of the late Gordon Hanna and Margaret Watt. Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews. She had a quiet pride in her United Empire Loyalist and Scottish settler heritage and lived her life with integrity guided by strong values of her native Ottawa Valley. She was a Registered Nurse, world traveller, avid gardener and lover of animals (especially fox terriers) and will always be remembered as a charitable and giving soul, with a surprising sense of humour. Resting at James Reid Funeral Home, 1900 John Counter Boulevard, Kingston. Family and friends will be received Thursday, January 17, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service will be held in the chapel of Turner and Porter Peel Chapel, 2180 Hurontario St. (Hwy 10, N. of Q.E.W), Mississauga, on Saturday, January 19, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. Interment will follow at St. John's Dixie Cemetery. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to The Salvation Army, the Heart and Stroke Foundation or charity of choice would be appreciated. www.jamesreidfuneralhome.com
