Obituary

Obituary for Vera Margaret Ely (Barnett)

On Monday July 1, 2019, CANADA DAY, Vera Margaret Ely of Don Mills, Toronto, Ontario passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones at the Extendicare Rouge Valley Residence located in Toronto.

Emigrated from her home country of England with her late husband Francis Anthony Melville Ely in the late 1950's. Worked as a Court Stenographer in England and spent her career in Canada as a homemaker and employee of Workplace Safety & Insurance Board. Vera loved spending time with her family most, gardening, drinking tea, baking, collecting English china and antiques, perusing flea markets and being an Anglican Church Lady.

She is survived by her two loving daughters Fleur and Fenella of Whitby, Ontario and son-in-law Jamie, four grandchildren Jennifer, Scott, Trevor and Charlotte and her sister and family Maureen, Royston and Graham of Arlingham, Gloucestershire, England.

Vera will always be remembered as a sweet lady who consistently gave and helped others. She was a kind hearted polite soul who continued to smile, give hugs and wave goodbye even in her hardest days.

We are proud of you and your fight Mum! We will miss you forever. Rest in well deserved peace until we meet again.

A private service will be held with family.

Donations may be made in her memory to Alzheimers (Demetia) Society.
