William "Billy" Wade, 55
June 21, 2022
With profound sadness we announce the passing of our dear William Wade, "Billy" who died suddenly at the age of 55 in Kitchener, Ontario, on June 15, 2022. Billy's infectious hearty laugh and great sense of humor will be missed by all. He had an excellent work ethic and keen eye for attention to detail which is what made his painting such quality workmanship. A good athlete, particularly in soccer for the game he cherished most. He would never say no to a rock concert and has an extensive list of musicians he's seen over the years. Billy would give you the shirt off his back, assist with anything you needed him to do, and gave compliments when due. Goodbye for now.
No cause of death reported.
Diane Ross, 71
June 19, 2022
Sudbury, ON - When Memere died suddenly, it came as a shock – probably because she was such a tough woman that we all imagined she would live forever. She had a big voice, but an even bigger heart. Her world was her “grandbabies” and she was fiercely protective of them, and of all her family. Memere was a huge presence in our lives and her unexpected departure creates a tremendous void for her husband, Rene Ross, and her three daughters – Monique VanBergen, Denise Losani and Joanne Ross. Memere will be forever missed by her six beloved grandchildren, Branden & Brittany Lindley, Spencer VanBergen, and Aiden, Reegan & Carter Purvis.
