Ranald ‘Randy’ Herbert Shaver


A resident of the Dunbar area, Ranald Shaver passed away suddenly at home on Sunday, October 16, 2011, with his wife of 48 years by his side.  He was 69.

Ranald was a cherished husband to Sharon (nee Montgomery).  They had three wonderful daughters Debbie, Shelley and Valerie.  He took great pride in their accomplishments especially with their choice in mates:  John Durant of Winchester, Benny Melenhorst of Mountain and David Brown of Brockville. 

Ranny was blessed with six special grandchildren: Jarrett, Randi and Mitchell Melenhorst, Mason and Evan Durant and Mackenzie Brown.  

Ranny is also survived by his dear brother Rick (Joanne) of Dunbar, his two amazing nephews Danny (Monica) Shaver and Derek (Tracie) Shaver, his dear mother in law Doris Montgomery, brother-in-law Colonel (Sharon) Montgomery, and sisters-in-law Janie Connelly, Gloria (Ken) Summers, Carol (Rod) Lafleur.  

Ranny is preceded by his parents, Reginald and Nellie (nee Presley) Shaver, grandparents Herbert and Buelah Shaver, Aunt Evelyn (Ebby) and niece Kemberley.  

Ranald was born on the 2nd concession in Aultsville on June 7, 1942.  With the coming of the St. Lawrence Seaway Project, the family was forced to relocate losing their farm land to the Goose Sanctuary, # 2 Highway, the railway and the 401.

In 1955, the family moved to a farm west of Dunbar.  Before the move, Ranny rode around in the big hydro trucks which were stationed on their property.  It was then that he began dreaming of driving a 18 wheeler.  

At the age of 16, he started working at the Morrisburg Dairy, until he realized his dream by driving a dump truck for Manlo Construction filling the Cardinal canal.  

From there, he went to work in Brockville for Cooney Haulage and Harold Smith and Sons as well as other local companies.  His last 18 years driving were for A.L. Blair Construction where he took great pride in his job and had a great respect for Art and Terry Blair.  

He loved joking with and listening to his truck driving buddies telling jokes and laughing on the C.B. and two ways.  When not at work on the weekends, he would spend hours polishing his truck.  

Ranny had a witty and quirky sense of humour and liked to tease and play practical jokes.  

He had a passion for the great outdoors.  Every season Ranny did something he loved:  Construction work in the summer, moose hunting and deer hunting in the fall, fox and coyote hunting in the winter and fishing and planting his garden in the spring. 

Gardening and lawn care were his way of unwinding and relaxing after long hours of work, but hunting was his real passion.  

During his younger years, Ranny enjoyed playing Broomball.  Over the last two years of his life, he had a new best buddy named Scooter.  The two of them went for daily drives.  Wherever Ran went you would find his dog.  

His door was always open to friends and family.  He had many close friends particularly Bob, Wayne and Sheila, Janet and the late Rae Loucks as well as brother Rick.  

Ranny spent many hours socializing, playing games and listening to old time country music.  His favourite hockey team was the Montreal Canadiens, and over the last few years he looked forward to watching Nascar.  His favourite Nascar drivers drove Ford.  

Ranald was known by many names: Ranny, Randy, Ran, Dad, Grandpa, Monday and then came Uncle Monday.  

Friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home, Chesterville, on Wednesday October 19th  from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.  The funeral service was held at the funeral home on Thursday, October 20th at 11 a.m., with Rev. Ian MacLean officiating.  

Interment was held at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.  Pallbearers were Danny Shaver, Derek Shaver, Aaron Wopat, Gordon McLaughlin, Jarrett Melenhorst and Wayne McHaffie.  Honorary pallbearers were Sheila McHaffie and Janet McCol, and Bob Lacelle.  

Donations to Winchester Hospital would be gratefully acknowledged by the family.

Being an only child, Hugh spent a great deal of time in his younger years with the Jones’ family. In his later years, he enjoyed gardening and time spent with his grandchildren. He worked hard and provided for his family. 

A quiet, shy man, he was a homebody at heart, and a down to earth person. His family was most important to him.

Elma Margaret Carr


A resident of Morrisburg for 20 years, Elma Margaret Carr (Youngs) passed away in Toronto on October 10, 2011, after a brief illness. 

Mrs. Carr recently said, “I taught many kids to swim. Maybe I kept a few kids from drowning. That’s not a bad legacy for a life.” 

Elma graduated from Toronto’s East General Hospital in 1941. In 1943, she met Langton Carr (deceased) in Kirkland Lake where she was nursing war veterans, and he worked in the office of a local mine. They were married in 1944. 

Elma and Langton raised six children in an old house on Lakeshore Drive. She joked that people would send her their children at the end of June and collect them in September. Many children learned to swim at the Carr’s dock which was a favorite place to congregate, to swim and to fish during the long summers. 

After she and Langton separated in 1958, Elma remained in Morrisburg for a number of years nursing at regional hospitals. In the early sixties, she moved to Long Sault and took a job at Cornwall General Hospital. 

Eventually she returned to Toronto, where she remained until her death.  There she practiced nursing until well into her seventies, and when she retired she volunteered for many years at Spectrum, a Toronto-based mental health organization. 

In August, family and friends joined her to celebrate her 91st birthday at a restaurant in Mississauga. 

To the last days of her life, Elma was happy and vivacious. She lived a long, good life.

Elma was predeceased by her former husband Langton Carr, his brother John Carr, her sons John Carr and Charles Carr,  and her niece Deborah Carr.  

She is survived by daughters Judith Johnson and Laurie Herman, sons Peter Carr and David Carr,  and by daughter-in-law Irene Tarnoweckyj. 

She will be remembered by nieces Janet McKay (Brian) and Linda Brown (Richard); grandchildren Tania Neptune (David), Natalie Tarnoweckyj, Amber Jamanka, Naomi Herman, Jaclyn Tarnoweckyj, Michelle Tarnoweckyj Reale (David), Amy Finlay (Sheldon), Ben Tarnoweckyj-Carr, Julia-Tarnoweckyj-Carr, Dylan Carr; great-grandchildren David and  Jacob Neptune, Jeynaba and Sahjo Jamanka and Erin Finlay. 

Condolences may be sent to the Carr Family, c/o Judy Johnson, PO Box 400786, Cambridge, MA 02140 or to

Maxine Link


A resident of the Long Sault Villa since May of 2006, Maxine Link passed away at the Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Thursday, October 20, 2011. She was 89.

Maxine was born in Grantley on June 21, 1922, the eldest child of Willam and Velva Merkley (nee Todd). When Maxine was only six years old, her brother Gordon four and her sister Dolores 18 months, their mother died.  Maxine and Gordon were then raised by Grandma and Grandpa Merkley and Dolores was adopted by another family. 

Maxine and Gordon lived with their grandparents until she was 13 and her father re-married Alice Meyers. She and Gordon then went to live with them.  Maxine and Gordon were eventually blessed with seven half brothers from their father’s second marriage.

For three years, the family lived south of Finch on Roy Rupert’s farm. Maxine attended elementary school in Sandtown, and high school in Finch. The family then moved to a Crysler farm east of Morrisburg, for the next three or four years before they moved to Evergreen Hall farm which was owned by Edson Salmon.  Maxine worked for Mrs. Salmon helping to clean rental cabins.  

During that time she met and married Gerald Link on March 20, 1943, and they were blessed with the birth of their daughter Marie in December of 1944. 

After their marriage Maxine and Gerald lived in a home on Church Road owned by Gerald’s brother Russell. They then moved to Gerald’s fathers farm until the Seaway construction began and forced them to move to a home they had built on the north end of the property. They resided there until the early 1970’s, when they sold their home and moved to the bungalow next door. 

Maxine lived in that home in Riverside Heights until May of 2006, when she moved to the Long Sault Villa.  

Maxine was an active member of the Riverside community having served as a member of the Rebekah Lodge, the Riverside Sewing Club, and Women’s Institute.  She was a dedicated member of Lakeshore Drive United Church in Morrisburg, and she also helped quilt with the Lutheran church ladies which was important to her.  Maxine was a hard worker, a good cook and she loved to visit with her family.  

She and Gerald were fortunate to enjoy three winter months in Florida for 17 years prior to Gerald’s passing in 2002.    

Maxine is survived by her daughter Marie (Ralph) Marcellus of Riverside Heights and her siblings Jim (Barbara) Merkley of Morewood, Richard (Bridget) Merkley of Winchester, Howard (Betty) Merkley of Morewood, Francis (Louise) Merkley of Orleans, Doug (Beverly) Merkley of Winchester and David (Carol) Merkley of Courtney, B.C.  

She was predeceased by her husband Gerald, her sister Dolores Moffat and her brothers Gordon and Wallace Merkley.  

Maxine will be fondly remembered by grandchildren Bert (Sandi) Marcellus, Ron Marcellus, Cathy (Jason) St. Pierre and great-grandchildren Austin, Rayanna, Aleisha and Bryce.  She is also survived by nieces and nephews.    

Friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home, Williamsburg, on Sunday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.  Funeral service was held at the home on Monday, October 24th at 10 a.m., with Rev. Arlyce Schiebout officiating.  Interment followed at Fairview Cemetery, Mariatown.

Frederick Albert Hill

Frederick Albert Hill passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, October 2, 2011. He was 82.

Fred was the loving husband of 61 years of Norma (nee Hunt). He will be greatly missed by his children Paul (Rosemarie) and David, both of Morrisburg and Beverley (Gary Styba) of Markham. He was proud grandfather of Trevor, Travis, Emily, Zoe, Spencer Hill and Aaron and Michael Styba.

He was predeceased by his granddaughter, Tara Hill, brother Denis and sisters Gwen Gordon and Vivian Nightingale.

Born in Limehouse, Ontario, on October 19, 1928, Fred was renowned for his work ethic, strong civic values and outgoing personality.

Determined to be his own boss, Fred worked in a variety of jobs that included getting his sheep-shearing license in Australia, digging out Hamilton Mountain, and assembling fighter jets at A.V. Roe in Milton before starting Kingston Dunbrik with his brother Denis and brother-in-law Allan Gordon in Kingston.

The brick manufacturing business brought Fred to Morrisburg in the mid-1950’s when the partners decided a second plant was needed to fill a growing demand for brick prompted by the St. Lawrence Seaway project.

After the sale of the brick business in 1963, Fred ventured into the insurance business before partnering with his brother Denis once again to purchase the mobile home park now known as Hill’s Mobile Village in 1966.

Never one to sit when he saw a need, Fred committed his spare time as Reeve and member of council for many years in the 1960’s and 1970’s. He met the Queen, participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony when the 401 opened at Morrisburg and drove the town’s first Zamboni from the train station to the arena.

He was instrumental in many projects around Morrisburg, taking particular pride in spearheading the rebuilding of the arena.

He was a member of the Morrisburg Lions Club and the Morrisburg Curling Club for many years.

In his later years, with sons Paul and David having taken the reins of his businesses, Fred and Norma spent much of their time travelling and socializing in their vintage GMC motor home. They wintered in Florida for many years and continued to make new friends.

Wherever they went, Fred was always quick to lend a hand.

At Fred’s request, there was no service or visitation. For those who wish to remember him, donations can be made to Winchester District Memorial Hospital or the Dundas County Food Bank. On line condolences may be offered at

Phyllis was born November 18, 1914, in Iroquois to the late James and Ethel Smith.

She was the dearly beloved wife of the late Albert English and loving mother of Jeannine (Ed) Barkley and Carol Ann Montgomery all of Iroquois. She was the much cherished “Mum” of Debra (Brian) Coughler of Spencerville, Sheree (John) Hanson, Chris (Nancy) Barkley all of Iroquois and Julie (Jerry) Lynch of Brockville.

She will be most sadly missed by six great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren and by several nieces and nephews.

Phyllis was a woman of great spirit, wit and determination. After the Second World War, she and Albert purchased English’s Dry Goods which they ran until 1976, when they retired.

She was family oriented and was always proud, caring and supportive of her family. Her home and her gardens were always impeccably kept.

Having survived the depression years, she was always mindful that all who came to her home were well fed and entertained. She truly enjoyed singing, dancing and especially enjoyed traveling.

Family and friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home in Iroquois on Tuesday, September 27, 2011, with the funeral taking place on Wednesday, September 28, 2011.

Robert John Locke

A native of Williamsburg and resident of Barrie for the past month, Robert John Locke passed away suddenly at home on Wednesday, October 5, 2011. He was 44.

Robert was born in Ottawa on April 16, 1967, to his parents Parker and Elizabeth “Bettie” Locke (nee Lennox).  

Being the youngest of six children meant he was spoiled by all, especially his sisters. The first seven years of his life were not unlike any of the other children. Then his father died. 

By this time, only he, sister Lauren and Bettie were at home. Lauren was attending university in Ottawa, and his mother went back to work. 

Robert became a latch key child, although his neighbours always kept a watchful eye on him. The Kehoe’s and Barkley’s were very good to him. With help, he persevered. He attended public school in Elma, then Maple Ridge and finally off to Seaway District High School in Iroquois. 

Robert’s greatest asset was his personality, and during high school he became well respected by his peers and teachers alike.  He developed leadership skills through his involvement in students council, and he eventually earned the reputation as being the official planner for his class.  These leadership skills would serve him well throughout the remainder of his life. 

Following in his older brothers’ footsteps, Robert enjoyed a few extra curricular activities one of which included spending time at the cottage on Ault Island.  

With respect to sports, Robert enjoyed playing baseball and hockey but his greatest sporting love was football. He and Gerry Mabo played in Cornwall, and as a one/two punch, became two of the best players on the team. 

Robert moved away shortly after high school to attend Sir Sanford Fleming College in Peterborough where he made many new friends. He completed a two year course in law and security, then went back and completed a business course where he ended up on the Dean’s list. 

Through this honor, he met some notable people, one of whom hired him at the lottery corporation.  Through hard work and determination he advanced quickly to become Director of Facilities & Maintenance at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation.  He was part of the startup program, which included the construction of the various lottery sites throughout Ontario, including Rideau Carleton Raceway in Ottawa. 

It was during the end of that period that he met his future wife Maha. They were married in a quiet ceremony in London on March 20, 2004.  Robert and Maha have three children, Jad 14, Amanda 6 and John 5.  Maha’s parents, along with her sister Lina were always willing to lend a helping hand allowing them the freedom to enjoy life to its fullest which they did. Good plan! Their zest for life took them on 15 vacations in the 11 years they were together. They also enjoyed hosting and attending parties with their family and friends. 

After the lottery sites were up and running, Robert moved on to become General Manager at Hiawatha Horse Park in Sarnia owned by his friend, Jim Henderson. He helped Jim with the day to day operations of running this establishment. Jim gave Robert a free run of the place and Robert enjoyed, not only working in the front office, but on the track and in the backstretch as well. But, as in life, all good things must come to an end. 

Robert left Sarnia on good terms to become General Manager at Georgian Downs in Barrie and had only been working there for approximately one month when tragedy struck. 

Robert is survived by his wife Maha, his children Jad, Amanda and John, his siblings Mahlon (Paula) of Morrisburg, Duane “Sam” (Claire) of Williamsburg, Elizabeth Locke-Dickey (John) of Williamsburg, Wendy Casselman (Jim) of Williamsburg and Lauren Harriman (Craig) of Williamsburg. 

He was a dear son-in-law of Faouz and Maurice Abou-Elias and brother-in-law of Nada, Eva, Lina and Maroun Abou-Elias.  

He was predeceased by his parents Parker and Elizabeth “Bettie” Locke.  

Uncle Robert will be sadly missed by John (Amy), Thomas (Marla), Jane (Bobby), Parker, Marissa (Kyle), Wendy (Phil), Jason and  Sarah.  He was a dear great-uncle of Kathryn, Emily, Joshua and William.  

Robert will always be remembered as an amazing brother, loving husband and father, super uncle, and true friend to many.

Friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home, Williamsburg,  on Saturday, from 2-6 p.m.  Funeral service was held at Williamsburg United Church, on Sunday, October 9th, at 2 p.m., with Rev. Christine Lowson officiating.  

Interment followed at Spruce Haven Cemetery, Brinston.

Dorothy Jean Wickwire

A life time resident of the Brinston area, Jean Wickwire passed away suddenly on Sunday Sept. 18, 2011.

Jean was born in Dixon’s Corners on December 18, 1945, to her parents Pringle and Greta Murphy (nee Burton).

As a young girl she spent some time in the family cheese factory wrapping butter, sliding from the snow piled near the roof against the rink shack at Johnston’s, swimming in a nearby creek and later at Fetterly’s quarry in Iroquois.

She attended public school in Dixon Corner’s and high school in Iroquois. Following high school, Jean worked for RCA in Prescott.

On December 18, 1965, Jean married Urcyl Wickwire of Brinston. They had two children.

Jean continued to work for RCA for a few years after her second child was born, but due to health reasons left the company.  Jean baby sat other children for a short while until she gained employment with the Caldwell Linen Mill. She remained with the company until it closed its doors in 2006.

Jean enjoyed a life long love for reading anything that was printed, and she also enjoyed snowmobile runs on Saturday nights to Chesterville or Sunday afternoon runs on the Nation River with Urcyl.

In the spring it was time to fish for mud pout with her children.  Later on she would watch her grandkids fish from the same bridge that she herself had caught an eel from.

She enjoyed skating “around the block” with her niece and nephews on the creek once it was frozen, and then a heated game of Aggravation with Ken and Ida.

As her children grew older, the pastimes changed from snowmobiling, go-carts and motorcycles, which she had purchased with her son, then it was on the river with the wave runners.

Jean enjoyed gardening and each season preserved pickles, tomatoes, and chili sauce.  At one time she tried her hand at making wine and discovered it wasn’t a good idea to store her new product in a certain type of bottle.  

She grew her own summer savory and laughed the first time it was placed on the clothes line to dry.  She always said “the stuff you buy in the store isn’t the same.”

Jean looked forward to the Murphy family gatherings, where brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces and nephews could be visited and it was always a good spot to try out a new recipe whether it was one of her own or someone else’s.

When her children visited they would have to try the latest recipe she had made from either her favorite cooking magazines or her collection of cook books.

Jean also enjoyed having the neighbors Robbie and Ricky over for holidays so they could rave about her dressing made from her own summer savory, and her pie making skills. Robbie would always ask; “do your kids have the same passion for cooking as you do.”

The answer is “yes we do” and we thank you for that Mom.

Jean is survived by her husband Urcyl and her children Wendy (Tim) Murphy RR#1 Iroquois and Tom (Rose) Wickwire of Brinston.

She will be lovingly remembered by her siblings Garry (Della) Murphy of RR#1 Iroquois, Gale (Doug) Reynolds of Iroquois, Allan (Phyllis) Murphy of Dixon’s Corners, Wilda (Adriaan) Vandeemheen of Dixon’s Corners, Aden (Linda) Murphy of Williamsburg, Nancy (Guy) Croteau of Iroquois, and Edward Murphy of Winchester.

Jean will be fondly remembered by grandchildren Michelle and Jarret Murphy and Amelia, Daniel, Camille and Benjamin Wickwire.  

She was predeceased by her parents Pringle and Greta Murphy (nee Burton) and an infant sister Ruth Ann.

She also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Friends called at the Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home, Iroquois on Tuesday, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.  Funeral service was held at the home on Wednesday, September 21st at 11 am, with Rev. Janet Evans officiating.

Interment followed at the Spruce Haven Cemetery, Brinston.

Pallbearers were Daniel Wickwire, Jarret Murphy, Todd Croteau, Nick Croteau, Dennis Wylie and Jim Murphy.

Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
