He had a positive attitude and a great love of life! No matter what the circumstance, Ron would always make the best of it… In other words, “Easy does it!” His first wife Joyce and Ron raised three children Earl (Debbie), Mark (Sherri) and Lara. During hard times, the family would pull together and were stronger for it. Ron was so thankful for this. His second wife Heather of 16 years (their anniversary was January 14th), was the love of his life! His step-children, Becky (Kris) and Daniel as well as Ron’s two grandkids, River and Natalie gave him an endless amount of joy and activity. Ron and Heather enjoyed travelling.

Except for the winter of 1943 when she worked in Toronto, Mary lived on the family farm. In 1946, Mary married J.B. Thomas on the family farm. They had two children, Wayne (1948) and Joan (1951). In 1947, they moved to what would be their family farm less than 2 miles from her former home. In 1978, J.B. and Mary retired to Hartney. J.B. quickly established an extensive Blue Bird network while Mary was involved in the UCW, Horticultural Society and the Hart-Cam Museum. At sixty-five Mary fulfilled a life long ambition when she started oil painting. In 1988, J.B. and Mary were devastated with the loss of Joan to a brain tumor. J.B. passed away in 1992. Mary spent several years in her house in Hartney looking after her flowers and garden. She particularly enjoyed taking some of the older ladies in town out for meals and developed many close friendships. She finally moved into Hart-Cam Lodge where she lived on her own until the time of her passing. Her family is very thankful for all her friends and for their support that allowed Mom, Grandma to remain on her own in the lodge. Your kindnesses are forever appreciated. The Hartney community should be very proud. There are very few communities where someone without nearby family could live on their own to the age of 98.
