Auntie Bea was a stalwart of St. Anne's Anglican Church and Pilot. She had a long career with Woolworth's, Radio Valve and Meadows Brokerage. Now she joins her beloved Jack, her husband of 15 years who died in 1961. She was predeceased by her brothers George Fitsell of Gladstone Avenue in Toronto, for whom she cared for many years and Jack Fitsell of Pottinger Street in Lindsay. She lived an old-fashioned life of modesty and service, mixed with a flair for colourful clothing and good humour in all she did.
