He will be best known for putting his friends and family before himself, always making sure there was fresh home-grown vegetables and delicious homemade meats and charcuterie on our plates as well as an endless supply of homemade wine that kept our glasses full. It was important for him to pass on his knowledge to everyone he loved, and the impact he had on all our lives is obvious, as many of the qualities he passed on to us not only made our lives better, but most importantly made us better people.

EDWARDS, Daniel Roy
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear father and grandfather, Dan on September 16, 2022 at the St. Catharines General Hospital at the age of 100. Predeceased by his wife Ethel (2012). He was the last to pass away of the 9 children of Ernest, born in White Cloud, Indiana, and Priscilla, a British Home Child from Bolton, England, brought to Canada through Dr. Barnardo’s child emigration. We will miss Dan’s stories of growing up in the Western Hill, where he lived all his life and of WW II.  Dan joined the army at age 19 in 1941 (5th Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment, R.C.A., later the Lanark and Renfrew Scottish Regiment) and was overseas for 4 ½ years, along with three of his brothers. He served in England, Italy, Belgium, and Holland during WW II. His older brother Les convinced him to join him as a Bren gunner so they could stay together as the Bren light machine gun required 2 men to operate. In northern Italy, Les and Dan were taking cover in a farmhouse under fire after Les was shot and injured. Les told Dan to leave him. Instead, Dan carried Les out and swam across a canal to bring him to safety. Les was forever grateful. After the war Dan became a carpenter, worked at the Beaver Wood Fibre Company and then Cyanamid until retirement. In 1954 he married Ethel Maki a Finnish girl from Wisconsin, and he built their home on Chetwood Street next to the home his father built. They raised two children, Janice and Dale (Darlene) and have four grandchildren: Adam, Sara, Jennifer and Lianna. Dan enjoyed sports when he was young, especially baseball.  When we were growing up, he taught us to swim in the lake and how to skate and play hockey on the ice rink he made many winters in our yard. He played horseshoes in the Cyanamid Horseshoe League, on The Mavericks team for over 20 years, setting a few records. But the sport he loved the most was horse racing, and I am sure he sparked the love of horses in a few of us! Our family would like to thank the nurses and PSWs from Paramed, Irina, Linda, and Petronella for their compassionate care as well as the doctors, nurses and support staff at the St. Catharines General Emergency and 3rd floor. Cremation has taken place through HAINE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 26 Ormond Street South, Thorold. As per Dan’s wishes there will be no visitation or service. Interment will be on Friday, September 30, 2022 at 1:00pm at Victoria Lawn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice may be made as you wish.

McMILLAN, Donald Angus, M.D.C.M.
May 11, 1925 to May 29, 2022

Dad died peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Sunday, May 29, 2022, at the age of 97. Beloved husband of Christine (nee Zumstein) for nearly 70 years. Loving father and father-in-law of Bill (Judy), Doug (Katherine), Paula (Brian), Bob (Michael), Jim (Tammy), Gord (Sarah), David (Chris) and daughter-in-law Jane. Proud grandfather of Stuart (Ali), Claire (Stu), Paddy and Dougie (Tianna); Christie, Katie (Jeremy) and Scott (Kathleen); Megan, Stephanie (Eric) and Laura (Rob); Will, Andy, Cameron and Zoe; Matthew, Gus and Luke; Leah and Sarah. Great-grandfather of Alex, Robin, Oscar, Alice, Juliette and Josie. Predeceased by his parents, Dr. W.H. McMillan and Mary (nee Fraser) and his brothers Kenneth (1923) and William (2014). Dad was a proud, lifelong resident of Thorold, Ontario. After graduating from Thorold High School, he attended Queen’s University and graduated from the Queen’s Faculty of Medicine in 1949. Six of his children followed his lead and attended Queen’s with three becoming doctors, two of whom also graduated from Queen’s Medicine. After completing his internship, Dad joined his father’s medical practice in Thorold in 1950. In 1959, Dad and his father, together with Drs. Gordon Ralph, Don Myers and Eugene Caira, established the Thorold Medical Clinic and were joined in practice in later years by Drs. J.J. Fraser, Bill Blaikie, Peter Pringle and Tim Tatzel. Dad was a dedicated and caring physician and considered his patients as friends. His practice included many evening and weekend house calls, as well as daily visits to the local hospitals and nursing homes. Dad practised medicine in Thorold for 57 years, retiring in 2007 just after his 82nd birthday. While maintaining his busy medical practice, Dad was also heavily involved in local politics. Following in the footsteps of his father who had been mayor of Thorold before serving as a member of federal parliament from 1950-1965, Dad was elected first to the Public Utilities Commission, then served on Town Council under his good friend Mayor Cec Grose. Dad was elected mayor of Thorold in 1972 and served as both Mayor and Regional Councillor until his retirement from politics in 1985. One of his proudest achievements as Mayor was spearheading the drive to make Thorold a city, which occurred in 1975. Longtime residents of Thorold will also remember the Mayor’s Report, Dad’s weekly column in the Thorold News where he updated the community on local issues and kept political opponents on their toes. Like his father, Dad was also active in the local Liberal Party. In 2013, Dad was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal to recognize his many years of service to the community. Despite his busy professional career, Dad always made time for his family. While evenings were filled with office hours or council meetings, Dad was home for family dinner every night. Some of his happiest days were spent on the dock at the family cottage on Muldrew Lake in Gravenhurst, Ontario. In his retirement, he and Mom were able to spend entire summers there, surrounded by their children and grandchildren. Growing up, Dad treasured summers spent in Blenheim and Port Elgin Ontario with his many cousins, aunts and uncles. Dad lived his entire life in Thorold. He was born at home in his parents’ apartment on Front Street, above Robinson’s bookstore, and died at home in the house that his parents built in 1940. A special thank you to the many kind caregivers who helped make it possible for Mom and Dad to remain at home so Dad could live out his last years in the home that he loved. Dad was a lifelong member of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Thorold, where he served as an Elder as well as Clerk of Session. While he would have wished to have a funeral service at St. Andrew’s, Dad felt that Covid posed too great a risk. For this reason, a funeral service will be held outdoors in the park beside the Thorold Seniors Centre, 8 Carleton Street South, on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 11am. There will be no formal visitation; however, Mom and family look forward to greeting friends and extended family following the service. For more information, please contact HAINE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 26 Ormond Street South, Thorold at 905-227-1732.  Cremation has taken place and Dad’s remains will be interred at Lakeview Cemetery with those of his parents and brothers in a private service.


WHITE, Eva (Szondi)
With devastating hearts, we sadly announce the very unexpected and sudden passing of Eva White on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at the age of 53. Beloved wife of Richard (Rick) and loving mother of Robert and Krisztina (Scott), Richie and Sarah (Ryan). Dear grandmother of Kaiden, Anikó, Peyton and Ronan. Sister of Mária (Wolfgang), Tibor and Sándor (Györgyi). Predeceased by her mother Mária and father Károly.
Our family would like to give a special thank you to Dr. Syed Faraz Masood, the nurses and the staff at the emergency and intensive care units of the Greater Niagara General Hospital for all their efforts on May 14th, 2022.
The world has turned so dark with the loss of the light which lead our way. Eva was the glue that held our family together far and wide. Born in Romania, she moved to Canada from Hungary with her children, Robert and Krisztina in December, 2000. Here, she met the love of her life Rick with whom she spent 13 loving years. Eva was the life of every party. A real spark who lit up every room she walked into. Anyone who was fortunate enough to know her, knew what a fun, good spirited and caring person she was. Her laugh was contagious and her geniality made it easy for anyone to feel at home in her presence. Eva loved to host family and friends at her home. She was an avid cook and took great pleasure in feeding anyone and everyone who was in the mood for some cabbage rolls, chicken parmigiana, Hungarian gulyás or a nice prime rib. The menu from her kitchen was ever changing and always appetizing. She was a true master of her craft. She left countless individuals eagerly awaiting the next meal she was going to whip up and outshine the last savoury masterpiece she served.
Eva’s greatest joys in life came from spending time with her family. She loved being a homebody with Rick and spending time with their children, grandchildren and two boxer dogs, Ali and Lily. She welcomed all of her sister-in-laws and their families with wide open arms. She embraced her beautifully blended family and cherished the special relationships she was able to gain through her love with Rick.
Whenever possible, she took the long trip across the Atlantic to see her brothers, sister, nieces and nephews. No matter the distance between her and her siblings, their bond never broke. Throughout the years, she maintained a close relationship as if she lived right next door.
Eva worked as a personal support worker for Tammy Cargill however, she never felt like taking care of Tammy was her “job”. Tammy was not only her friend and confidant but the niece of her beloved husband, Rick. Eva was a natural born caregiver and she knew that if there was any way she could make life easier for Tammy and her husband Brad, she would do it. She enjoyed being a part of their family on a regular basis as if it were her very own. Eva overachieved in every aspect of her role and she will be an irreplaceable part in Tammy’s life, much like everyone else’s.
Death is a thief who stole our beloved Eva. It’s extremely difficult to describe someone so extraordinary and with so much life left behind. Eva’s undeniable strength and perseverance has taught all of us that we can and will survive. Her loss has left an immeasurable hole within our hearts. With time comes hope that one day we can form a new normal without her in our world. Our grief will be betrayed by the smile we put on our faces as we try to come to terms with this devastating loss. She will be achingly missed but her memory and love will forever be carried on. Heaven gained a new angel and she will never ever be forgotten.

DOMINIC, Jeremiah
We, the Dominic family are devastated to announce that a beautiful heart has stopped beating on December 6, 2021. Our charismatic and beautiful son and brother, Jeremiah Dominic, passed away from a fentanyl overdose. Although we cannot say that he died peacefully, we know that he is now at peace. Jeremiah had an addiction problem but we will never let him be defined by that. Addiction is a symptom of the person and doesn’t define the person. We want people to know the person, and that he loved his family, friends and his animals. He would do anything for anyone. He would always bring home a stray or wounded animal and nurse them back to health before releasing them back to nature. He loved nature and felt at peace when he was in the woods or near water. He loved to pull pranks. He had a brilliant and curious mind. You’d never have a conversation with him without walking away learning something about history, the planets/space, or numerous other topics. Before his addiction (and even as an addict), he was very entrepreneurial; even at the age of 14, he started his very own and successful lawn business and hired his dad to help cut lawns. He also learned at a young age that he could pay his sister to do his chores. He had a huge heart and always stood up for the underdog, (even if it got him into trouble). He graduated head of his class and pursued a career as a Child and Youth worker. He was pivotal in assisting young people onto a good path in life. He made a positive impact on the youth he helped with his seemingly endless positive traits. He had the potential to be anything from a captivating politician to a researcher that could solve the climate crisis. Outwardly it looked like he had it all. Intelligence, beautiful blue eyes, a big smile that would light up the room, and the ability to engage and forge a relationship with anyone. Inwardly Jeremiah was sensitive and had struggles that he hid well from his friends and family. We all loved Jeremiah with all of our hearts but we now know that it was not enough to shield him from the world. For anyone suffering addiction, please know that you are loved so much, that people care about you and there is help if you seek it. Please do not wait. It could make the difference of life or death. Most importantly for loved ones of addicts, always tell your loved ones how much you love them. We want people to know that Jeremiah was more than his addiction, he was a son, a brother, a brother-in-law, an uncle, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin, and a friend. Dear Jeremiah - you will always stay in our hearts and be loved and remembered every day. Our lives will never be the same. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to his nephews charity, Bens army, retinoblastoma department of Sick Kids https://fundraise.sickkidsfoundation.com/bensarmy. Or to CASON, Community addiction services of Niagara in the hope that Jeremiah’s death is not in vain and that he could help one more person who is struggling with addiction, or to save the pain of one more family who is forever changed and broken hearted. Your loving family, father John, mother Debbie, Sister Katrina, brother-in-law Justin, nephews Ezzie and Ben, grandmother Jenny, aunt Pat, great cousin Jude, and countless other cousins and friends who love you unconditionally. A private funeral service and cremation to follow will be held at the HAINE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 26 Ormond Street South, Thorold. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
 
How? It is a question I ask myself often. How did you go from a sweet innocent baby boy over forty years ago to the person you were when you took your last breath being terrorized by pain? How? It is a question I ask myself often. How could I have taken away your pain? What could I have done differently so that you could still be here with me today? How? It is a question I have asked myself since your passing. How will I ever be able to tell you again that you are so loved and you had the most special gifts to offer this world. You have always been and will continue to be my greatest teacher. How? It is a question I have asked myself since your passing. How am I going to be able to support our parents who are suffering from the greatest tragedy any parent can experience? Parents that loved you more than you will ever know. How? It is a question I have asked myself since your passing. How will I ever be able to put an end to this horrible opioid crisis? How will I ever be able to make sure that no other families will have to live through this nightmare of their loved one becoming another statistic? How? It is a question I have asked myself since your passing. How will I make sure the world knows there was so much more to you than your addiction? You had the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known with the most curious and brilliant mind. You were a son, a brother, an uncle, a grandson, a cousin and a friend. How? Is a question I have asked myself since your passing. How will I go through life never having another hug with you or another one of our long chats? How am I going to go on without you? I will miss you big bro. - Your loving sister Katrina

She had many friends, notably Sharon “Little Sharon” (nearly 70 years!) and Don. The first phase also included Ricci's and disco dancing, to campfires and fishing on the French River. Then she crossed the Mason Dixon line at Lorenzi's and started the second half, in old town Thorold, in the Chapel and Clairmont area where she fell in love with her old house as she decorated and refinished furniture, and again meeting many new lifelong friends, including Nancy and Mike, and Lois and Craig. Most of all, through and through, she was a loving Mom to Kyle and Joel. From runny noses and fevers, to cubs, scouts, chief scouts, Merrittville, baseball, basketball, schooling, apprenticeships, finally to proud Grandma to Abby and Grace, she was the best. She loved her boys, even Robbie too. The family extends a special thank you to the incredible Dr. Raymond Harb, who stood by Sharon’s side through it all. Also, a special thank you to everyone at St. Elizabeth (Dr. Manser, Nora, Judy, Darryl), Care Partners, and Bayshore. Your love and support to Sharon will never be forgotten.

ADAMS, David Wilfred
1937 – 2021
It is with profound sadness that Dave’s family announces his peaceful passing on November 28, 2021 after many years with Alzheimer’s Disease; an illness that stole his mind but never broke his spirit. The love of Dave’s life, Roselyn (née Carson), to whom he was married for nearly 60 years, passed away in 2016. He leaves behind his children, Dave Adams, Jr. (Terry Parry), Laurie Britton (Don Jones), and Karen Adams, as well as grandchildren, Heather Netherway (John), Jacalyn Britton (Justin Reeves), Shawn Adams, and Christopher Koch (Michele). Dave’s great-grandchildren, Annie and John Netherway, Jr. and Grace Reeves, have few memories of the incredible love that Grampa bestowed upon them in his better years, but mention of their names always brought a smile to his face. Dave is also survived by his brothers, Bill Adams and Bob Gray (June) of Burk’s Falls, his sister-in-law Jackie Howard of Forest, VA, as well as many nieces and nephews. Dave loved life. He was a storyteller, joker, singer of little ditties, master of one-liners and he had a cliché response to most everything. He loved to laugh and could entertain for hours. Dave could fix or build most anything he set his mind to, and one of his proudest feats was the cottage he built on his family land in Burk’s Falls, Ontario. He cherished the time he was able to spend at the cottage and loved to see one and all enjoy the ATVs, fishing, drinking beer around the fire, or loving the spectacular view from the front porch – a legacy that will live on in his children. Dave worked at the Ontario Northland Railroad from 1953 to 1965, where he enjoyed his work as a Telegraph Operator. In 1965, Dave moved his family from Cochrane to St. Catharines, where he worked at Hayes Dana until his retirement in 1996. The family wishes to thank Linhaven Home for the Aged for their amazing care. A special thank you to Linda for the love and special care you provided. No question, Dave loved you as though you were one of his own. Cremation has taken place with private interment at Niagara Lakeshore Cemetery, Niagara-on-the-Lake. All who wish to pay their respects to Dave are invited to a Celebration of Life on Friday, December 3, 2021 at 3:00 at Grantham Lions Club at 732 Niagara Street, St. Catharines. For those who are unable to attend the service at 3:00, please feel free to stop in for a drink and a bite to eat between 4 and 8pm.  Proof of Vaccination and Government-Issued ID is required. Casual attire. We welcome you to share your memorable “Davisms” in the guest book. If desired, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society of St. Catharines would be appreciated by the family. “We’ll see you in the funny papers.” Funeral arrangements entrusted to the HAINE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 26 Ormond Street South, Thorold.

DeROSE. Josephine E.
April 23, 1922- May 16, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Josephine DeRose in her 100th year. Josephine was born and raised in Thorold, the daughter of Salvatore (d 1983) and Angelina (d 1971) Cosentino, the devoted wife of the late Amedeo DeRose (d 1983), the sister of Evelyn Remigio (d 2014), Helen Pullen and of her adopted cousins Vivian LaVia ( d 2018), Vera Muelli, Leonard Walters (d 1995) Jimmy Walters (1985) and Peter Walters (d1983). Her parents and the eight children, all under the age of six, managed to live harmoniously in a three bedroom semi-detached home through the depression. Stories of that period are family lore. Josephine DeRose was also "Aunty Jo" to countless nephews and nieces in our very large extended family. There are too many to list here but we all grieve her loss. Josephine graduated from high school as WWII was winding down. A teacher shortage at the time necessitated the recruitment of high school graduates to teach elementary school. So, armed with her HS diploma and ministry of education summer school diploma she began 48 year teaching career in Merritton, and later in Crowland, Welland and Toronto. She earned a Masters degree and went on to teach summer school for Special Education teachers at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Education. Josephine traveled extensively through Europe, the Middle East and across North America. She fulfilled a lifelong dream to explore the ancient history of Palestine and Egypt. She rode a camel and a mule to archaeological sites. Suffice to say it wasn't exactly Indiana Jones but it enriched her perspective on life. She was an avid reader and a bridge master. But above all, she loved opera especially Verdi and Puccini and her eyes lit up when she listened to Pavarotti. The family wishes to extend their heart felt thanks to Jeannine, Josephine's caregiver of the last five years, as well as all the staff at Northland Pointe for their support. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life to honour Josephine will take place in the future when family and friends can travel and gather safely. Memorial donations may be made in Josephine's name to her favourite charities Save the Children and Rotary Club of Canada. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the HAINE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 26 Ormond Street South, Thorold.
