Book of Condolences

Gerry and Dianne BoulterOur deepest condolences to you all over Marie's passing. Marie was a wonderful woman and it was our privilege to have known her. She will be sorely missed.
Judy AndersonMrs. Goldhawk was my grade 2 teacher at the old Rosedale School: it was replaced by a new building in about 1957. I remember Mrs. Goldhawk being a quiet, thoughtful woman. I believe she was pregnant that year. She had very dark hair but this picture looks like her! We never considered that our teachers had first names in those days! I'm glad to see that "Marie" had a long, happy life and a big family. I'm a teacher too--45 years--and I'm now nearly 70: it's hard to believe. I'm very sorry for your loss. RIP, Marie.
Susan SmytheSo sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. It is hard to lose a parent but I hope you will recall many happy memories whenever you think of her.
Valerie + Brad PaulSo sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Marie. She was truly one of a kind, a loving, compassionate and beautiful lady. She will be missed in the “Goldhawk “ family. Our condolences to her children, grandchildren, extended family and friends.
Dale (Mary) MunroThrough the years, Marie contacted me periodically to touch base on news or updates regarding the Munro family. I was always impressed by her very real concern for others. We discussed our shared interests in family history & my professional work in mental health. At this time, our sincere thoughts are with the Goldhawk & Annett families.
Mary StearnsSo very sorry to hear of Marie's passing. Marie was an active yoga participant in my classes (Can Do Yoga) for years. She started shortly after her husband passed away, and continued right up until the end of July 2017 when the classes ended. I (and we) always enjoyed and appreciated Marie's presence. She had so much to offer, and also delighted in whatever new information came her way. We last saw her in September 2017 when she joined us in St. Joseph's for a class get together to see how everyone was doing. It is hard to imagine that she is longer with us, and most importantly, with you. She always spoke fondly of the members of her family. Do hold your memories close. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Margy and Al GrankenDear Aunt Marie you will be deeply missed. Jim, Donna, Nancy, Mark and Gary - you and your families are in our thoughts and prayers - your mother was a kind and thoughtful and classy lady. Her memory will live on in all of us who had the honour of knowing her. Margy (Ann) and Al Granken
Beth JamesI am very sad to hear of Marie's passing. I was her neighbour until I moved to Leamington in 2006. We kept in touch via email and the occasional phone call plus we tried to have a yearly lunch in Erieau. That didn't happen as often as we would have liked but I did see her in the late summer of 2016 at Molly and OJ's. That get-together was followed by sharing many laughs sitting on one of the benches on the boulevard. I had emailed her on June 14 and when I didn't hear back, I assumed she was in California visiting family. A mutual friend was kind enough to be in touch with the sad news. I'm glad to have such wonderful memories of our last get-together. Marie was a kind and gentle woman. She was an excellent neighbour and a very good friend. I will miss her.
Fritz and MilkaWe just now found out about Marie and are quite saddened to hear about her passing. Knowing Marie over the past 15 years has been a real honour and pleasure. A very lovely friendly lady. She will be missed. Our deepest condolences to Marie’s entire family. RIP dear Marie Fritz and Milka
