My folks are both in a beautiful niche at Woodlawn. It’s fitting as most of our happy family memories took place in and around Guelph and mostly on a hobby farm in Erin Township. In the summers we ran a farm camp for kids from bigger urban areas like Toronto. Once a week my mom would rent a local mini bus and we’d all pile in, campers & counsellors alike along with a packed picnic lunch. We’d go roller skating at Bingeman park, visit the old Kitchener Farmer’s market on Victoria St or visit the Lion Safari near Cambridge. My dad still needed to work during the 6 summers we had the farm camp but he enjoyed a cool dip in the round, above ground pool on those hot, sweltering days, frolicking around with the campers. They spent their last few years in Guelph at a local long-term care facility and I believe their final resting spot is one we can all be proud of.
My sympathy to the Swindall family. Don and I served with the London Police. We attended various police social gatherings often with our families. During retirement years we continued to meet at Pensioners’ events and monthly meetings at Cuffs. Mary was always very friendly. She was a first class lady with a perpetual smile. She will be missed. My condolences to Mary’s family during this sad time.
