I lived with Aunt Toots for a few months in 1980 when I moved to Toronto. She was very kind, generous with her time and always made me feel welcome in her home. I have fond memories of my stay with her and Uncle Bert.

My deepest condolences to the family. I am very sorry to learn of the passing of grandma ELLIS. She was a beautiful, thoughtful woman. I have very fond memories of her that I will cherish forever. As we speak she is probably bickering up in heaven with grandpa Ellis. They were quite comical the way they carried on. I never got sick of listening to his old time stories & welcomed her thoughtful, talented crafts that she made me. Forever together in heaven now, in the arms of the angels with their daughter Brenda
