WALTER CHARLES JONES

June 25, 1928 October 5, 2018 Passed away peacefully at the Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto on Friday, October 5, 2018 at the age of 90 years, surrounded by his loving family. Beloved husband of Dilys; predeceased by his first wife, Phyllis.

Walter was a special father and grandfather and will be greatly missed by his children, Lynda (Danny) and Stephen; his stepchildren, David (Lisa), Janice (Gabe), Lise (John) and Meryl (Daniel); and grandchildren, Paul (Shirley), Jennifer (Cory), Jacob and Emma, always reminding them "don't take any wooden nickels." He will also be missed by his cousins, Lillian, Beverley, and Doug in Windsor, Ontario.

Walter spent his entire 40year career at Aetna Canada (Excelsior Life), starting as a young underwriter and ending there as Vice-President. He was a kind, gentle, ethical and generous man. He was very active in East York, serving as Chair of the Toronto East General Hospital Foundation Board and the Hospital's Board of Governors, President of the East York Kiwanis Club and President of the Don Mills Provincial PC Association.

Walter was a life-long Anglican and was fully engaged in the life of the church. He was a proud former President of the Anglican Young Peoples Association (AYPA) and travelled across Canada, visiting young Anglicans from Newfoundland to British Columbia. He was an active volunteer for over 30 years at the Michael Garron Hospital (formerly Toronto East General Hospital) and cherished his time volunteering as the pianist at the ecumenical services in the long-term care unit.

Walter was a voracious reader and was known to have three or four books on the go at any given time.

He loved politics, history, music, a good martini and anything Welsh, and was always up for a spirited debate with family and friends.

A long-time member of The Toronto Hunt, Walter played golf with the "Royal and Ancients" just a few days before he fell ill.

The family wish to thank the staff of the B3 unit at Michael Garron Hospital for their skills and caring during Walter's short stay. Funeral Mass will take place at The Church of St. Jude (Wexford), 10 Howarth Avenue, Scarborough, M1R 1H4 at 10.30 a.m. on Saturday, October 13th.

Visitation will be at the Church from 9 a.m. Donations in Walter's memory may be made to St.

Jude's (Wexford) Anglican Church or the Michael Garron Hospital.

NANCY ANNE TAYLOR (née Webber)

April 17, 1949 October 10, 2018 It is with profound sadness that we announce Nancy's passing, which happened peacefully at Hospice Care Ottawa, May Court Hospice on October 10, 2018 after a recent diagnosis of cancer.

She is lovingly remembered by her husband, John; daughter, Stephanie Coughlin (Ryan); son, Timothy (Caryn); and sisters, Kerrie Bras and Maureen Webber.

Nancy's grandchildren, Thomas, Elly, Gwen and Ava will all greatly miss their 'Nana'. Although Nancy made many friends during her time in Guelph, Winnipeg, Mississauga and most recently, Ottawa, her special place will always be Norway Bay, Quebec, where the Taylor family has enjoyed summers since the late 19th century.
