PROULX: Kevan Ann

Peacefully after an all too brief struggle with glioblastoma, on Sunday, August 27, 2017 at her home in Ingersoll and surrounded by her loving family. Beloved wife of 40 years to Randy, mother to daughters Jaymin and Erin (Leferman), mother-in-law to George Leferman, cherished Nana to Adrina and sister-in-law to Chris and Barbara Proulx. Kevan will also be mourned by the three latest feline members of the Proulx household: sisters Annie, Bella and Cindy. A lifelong figure skater,  Kevan was also a master coach who passed on her passion to countless individuals, including her daughters, the joy of standing on two thin metal blades, gliding across the ice and carving a sharp edge. Daughter of the late James and Dorothy Coulter, Kevan grew up in Windsor, moved to London where she taught family studies and settled in Ingersoll. An accomplished skier and former scuba diver, the Proulx home was made all the more beautiful by Kevan’s love of quilting, growing orchids and collecting fine china. Funeral arrangements entrusted to  McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home, 246 Thames St. S., Ingersoll with internment at a later date. Donations to a charity of your choice or to a local humane society.
“You’re my bread when I’m hungry
  You’re my shelter from troubled winds
  You’re my anchor in life’s ocean
  But most of all you’re my best friend.”

SINCLAIR: Diana Elizabeth

SINCLAIR:  Diana Elizabeth –  At Alexandra Hospital on August 23, 2017 in her 87th year.  Beloved daughter of the late James and Zillah Sinclair of Ingersoll.  Predeceased by infant brother, James.  Loving friend of Harold and Nancy Matthews and Godmother of Alister and Hamish Matthews.  Diana was proud of her Scottish heritage and equally proud of Canada as a nation of compassion and acceptance of all people. She was community-minded and a lifelong member of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, Ingersoll.  Diana chose a career in public health, first in Napanee for three years and then returning home to Ingersoll to work with the Oxford Board of Health.  She travelled the roads of the southern part of the county, helping young mothers and their newborns, in the schools with children and wherever a health need arose, bringing her skill, her calm and her compassion.  Diana’s pleasures in life were simple – her daily newspaper, a good book, reruns of M.A.S.H., her ladies’ card group, receiving friends at home, some travel and always a pampered cat about the house.  A celebration of a life well-lived will be held at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, 56 Thames St. S., Ingersoll on Friday, September 1, 2017 at 11:00 am with visitation one hour prior to service.  Donations in memory of Diana may be made to Alexandra Hospital or St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church or the charity of your choice.  Arrangements entrusted to the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home 519-425-1600.
