Monica MacLean (née Kalyniuk)
March 07, 1963 - June 08, 2003

It is with total despair that the MacLean family must once again announce another tragic loss (this time their mother) Monica. She is survived by her three young sons Paul, Travis and David; her mother Veronica (George) and her father Paul (Linn). Monica leaves to mourn the best sisters in the world Paula (Darren), Zoria (Paul/Bill) and Heidi (Recksi and Spice), as well as many sweet nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by Gary MacLean from (MacLean and MacLean) KY58 Big Daddy Gary MacLean. Monica had just celebrated her 40th birthday and seemed to be at her peak, more beautiful than ever when she was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer. In recent years Monica had surrounded herself with some very kind, decent friends such as K.K., Janet, Donna, Morris and Marcia, Yves, Laurier, Bob, Howard and Laura, James, Duncan and Jack, the McDougal family, Vance, B.C., Peter, Karen, and Mark, Doug, Karl Blair and Marcia, Gordo, Brenda, Tiny, and many others. Monica had spent half her life being a musicians wife, mostly at home, trying to raise the "perfect" family and be the "perfect" hostess. She was a certified fitness trainer. Monica liked to stay in shape and liked to look good. She thrived when she had a decorating project to do. Monica loved to laugh, listen to good music and have fun. But more than anything in the world it was us that she loved. In spite of her hopeless diagnosis and even worse treatment plans for her, Monica maintained her sense of humour and bravery throughout. The only thoughts that would occasionally lead her to her darkest hours was the realization of having her three sons here without benefit of Gary (their father) and herself. Monica was a good mother and her smile and laughter will be sadly missed. Funeral service will be held on Thursday, June 12, at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel of Glen Eden Funeral Home, 4477 Main St., with Rev. Father Robbie McDougall. Interment in Glen Eden Memorial Gardens. A gathering of family and friends will follow in the Glen Eden Reception Centre. Arrangements entrusted to: GLEN EDEN FUNERAL HOME 4477 MAIN STREET 338-7111

Sarah "Sally" Jane Woodruff (née Pilsbury)
April 08, 1905 - June 12, 2003

SARAH JANE WOODRUFF passed into the arms of her Lord on the morning of Thursday, June 12, 2003. Her 98 years left the world a much better place. She will be remembered for her loyalty and caring of family and friends.

Born to James Pilsbury and Sarah Ann Pilsbury, sister to James Pilsbury, Jr.

She was happily married three times. Her first husband, and father of her three children, was Fred Fell. Both her second husband, Gerald Fearon, and her third husband, George ("Bunny") Woodruff, had two children from their respective previous marriages. All four became loved step-children.

Sarah was a terrific mother to George Edward Fell (and his wife Pamella), Joan Ryan and the late Jack Fell, and was also the step-mother/mother and friend to Ron Fearon (and his wife Lynda), Len Fearon (and his wife Audrey), Jill Smith, nee Woodruff, (and her husband Phil) and Wendy Mochizuki, nee Woodruff, (and her husband Harry).

Grandmother and step-grandmother to Darren &Betty Fell, Carolyn Fell, Steven & Julie Alston, Christopher & Elaine Ryan, the late Kelly Ryan, Karen Ouelette, Kevin & Joanne Fell, Julie & John Wood, Kimberley & Nick Zincone, David & Laura Fearon, Mary-Lyn & Greg Cook, Doug & Laura Fearon, Stephen & Lori Fearon, Laurene & Mark Patterson, Jennifer & Rick Hulford, Andrew & Kerry Smith, and Kimberley Mochizuki.

Also, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother to approximately 21.

Born Sarah Jane Pilsbury in Nottingham, England, she came to Canada when she was 6. She began work at the age of 14 in a factory. At the age of 16 she began working as a Switchboard Operator at the Bell, where she worked until her marriage to Fred Fell. After her first husband passed away, she worked as a Switchboard Operator for the Carling Brewery and years later for the Metropolitan Toronto Police Department where she worked until she retired at the age of 65. Sarah continued working at the Inn on the Park, where she worked for 7 years.

Sarah has kept in touch with all of her family and extended family with phone calls, letters and in person. She has been the family communicator, letting everyone know what is happening in everyone's lives. It came naturally to her to look after everyone and made it a point to call if she knew you had been sick or had a problem. All of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren have wonderful memories of the times they visited or stayed at Nana's. We are all better people for the love, kindness and knowledge she shared with us. Her inner strength is an example that none will forget. She never wavered from her beliefs and values.

In addition to caring for her family, throughout her life Sarah made many friends, including past neighbours and members of the churches she attended regularly, both Baptist and United. She also made friends at the condominium she lived in for the last 10 years (Glen Maple) and at The Wexford Nursing Home for the past few months. Wherever she has lived, Sarah loved and cared for others and was always making sure they were okay and helping wherever she could. That was her nature.

Some of her favorite hobbies were gardening (there are hundreds of African violets in Toronto that she helped grow), knitting, baking, family & friends. She had many interests.

Sarah's family would like to thank the Rouge Valley Centenary Health Centre, the Scarborough Community Care Access Centre, the Wexford Nursing Home and Sunnybrook Hospital for making her last year a more comfortable one for her.

Visitation will be on Monday, the 16th of June, 2003, from 12 noon with the funeral service directly afterward at 2:00 p.m. at the Ogden Funeral Home, 4164 Sheppard Avenue East, Scarborough.

Instead of flowers, it was Nana’s wish that donations be made to either the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation (905.944.8700, x-247 or and click the "Donation" link) or to the Hospital for Sick Children Foundation in Toronto [please specify "for cancer research"] (416.813.5320 or and hit the "Donation" link).

Here's to a classy lady - our very own "Queen Mum"!
