Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, unheard, but very near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

GOODBYE MY Wednesday night skating buddy in the old Ilderton arena and canasta player!
Dear Bob and May, on behalf of the McKinlay family I would like to send you our condolences. Your mum was a wonderful, hardworking and fun lady. I’ll miss her yelling out of her car to say hi. Her hair in rollers on Saturday so she would look good for church on Sunday. Regifting chocolates to give to my son’s ( they shared a birthday with her) when they brought her flowers on her birthday. Good memories.
Bob and the Manning Family
Your mom was a beautiful and special lady and I always enjoyed talking with her whenever we met. My condolences to all of you…she will live on in the wonderful memories you have of her.
Expressing our condolences to Bob, friends and extended family. Marietta was a visible fixture of Ilderton always in a hurry but always time for a cheerful smile and greeting. She was definitely a matriarch for the village for years.

Goodbye Aunt Marietta,
Although John & I are sad that Aunt Marietta has passed away, we are also relieved that such a vibrant person was spared from a lengthy, prolonged illness.
Aunt Marietta and I every autumn would go to Pam & Byron’s for a ‘sleepover’ and some very competitive scrabble & euchre games.
We always travelled through
Dublin, Conestoga, to Bloomingdale stopping at every antique store along the way. Aunt Marietta would say to me “Kate we are just!! looking DO NOT let me buy anything I have a house full of antiques now”. Well we all know how the rest of that story goes!!
Aunt Marietta was so full of life, so many friendships, family, shuffleboard, scrabble!
We will miss you so very much Aunt Marietta!
Love John & Cathy Taylor
Dear Bob, Nancy & families;
Please accept our sincere condolences. I can still hear Marietta’s voice as she sang to us on our birthdays.Her phone calls were never long but heartfelt.
I believe Len & Marietta were a huge support to my parents, Tom& Eileen Rushton when they moved to the area in 1962.
.Mike & I will always remember hiding our car and changing our wedding clothes at their beautiful home.
So many fond memories….
Faye& Mike Geoghegan
Bob and Nancy Rushton

Dear Bob, Your Mom will be missed. We have wonderful memories of her. She always showed an interest in our lives and loved to help wherever she could. She had a happy life and spread her joy with others. Sorry we can’t make her service, we will be thinking of you.
Bob we were so sorry to hear of Marietta’s passing. She played such an important part in our lives growing up and was such a great friend of my mother’s. When I remember her it will be with a smile and all the life lessons she taught us. Don and myself are thinking of you , Nancy,and Bob and families and hope you find comfort in all your the wonderful memories.
So very sorry for your loss. Marietta was a special friend and neighbour. The beauty and colour in her gardens were a perfection reflection of the beauty of her soul.
Your Mom, Bob, was a very special person and every visit Chris and I had with you included her.
To have lived such a long and rich life, that she shared with so many, is amazing.
And cannot forget her zest for life and marvellous sense of humour. I will remember her “fascinate” joke for my lifetime.
Heartfelt regards , Bill
