Dec 20, 1935 - Dec 10, 2023
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Beverly Dougherty, 87, of Toronto, ON, on Sunday, December 10th, at St. Joseph’s Health Centre, surrounded by her family. Beverly was born on December 20, 1935 to Michael and Mary Tuohy in Montreal. She grew up in the Park Extension neighborhood there surrounded by a large extended family of siblings and cousins, with frequent trips made to "Uncle Campbells farm" in the Eastern Townships for holidays and family celebrations. In the mid-1950's her work at Goodyear took her to Toronto, where she met her husband-to-be, Alan. They married in 1957, settled in Mimico and soon had 2 children, Maureen and Michael. At the same time they founded Etobicoke Cartage, and for the next three decades Mom's prodigious ambition and drive were directed equally at raising her children and making a success out of the company. After Dad's untimely death in 1995 and with the company wound down, Mom set out on her second career as Bookkeeper and later Office Manager of the United Senior Citizens of Ontario (USCO). For close to 30 years she immersed herself in these duties, supporting the elected leadership of the organization in their activities to educate, support and advocate for seniors across the province with all levels of government. Over the decades Mom made many friends throughout the USCO and treasured this social interaction as well as the help and support she received in her work. Her efforts culminated with her receiving the USCO Senior of the Year Award in 2021. Beverly was a loving wife and mother, and an amazing role model who could always be counted on when needed. She was loved by her family and will be deeply missed. She is survived by her children Maureen (Wally) and Michael; her two grandchildren Chris (Emily) and Cate (Kevin); her great grandchildren Ellie and Archer as well as her sibling Brian (Gail) and a number of nieces and nephews. As per her wishes, cremation has occurred and a private, family only service will be held on December 14, 2023. If desired, donations may be made to the Salvation Army ( Donate to Salvation Army ) in her memory. Messages of Condolence may be left at www.hogle.ca

Joseph (Joel) Merzetti
Died : Feb 18, 2024
"In loving memory of Joseph (Joel) Merzetti. With heavy hearts, the family announces the peaceful passing of Joseph (Joel) Merzetti on Sunday, February 18th, 2024, at the age of 72, after a long journey with prostate cancer. Joel was a beloved father to Connor (Ikue). He was a treasured brother to Susan Mickle (Doug), and Laura Merzetti (Rob). Joel leaves behind many cousins, nieces, nephews and so very many friends who hold him dear in their hearts. He also leaves behind his beloved guitar, Ruby. He was predeceased by his parents Herman and Lorraine (Keenan) Merzetti, and one sister Angela Tomsic (Gene). Known to his family as Joe, in a declaration of independence in his teenage years, he changed his name to Joel, becoming a very determined adult in the process. He was guided by a quiet insistence on being true to himself, which never wavered throughout his lifetime. Born in North Bay, Ontario, Joel also spent many years growing up in Haileybury and New Liskeard before calling Toronto home for the majority of his life. Joel was a gifted musician and a soulful singer-songwriter who touched the hearts of all who had the privilege of listening or playing with him. His lyrics were poetic and profound, weaving stories that resonated with the human experience. Joel spent the last two decades supporting students in their educational journeys at Robarts and Gerstein Libraries, University of Toronto. He will be fondly remembered by students and staff. At Joel’s request there will be no visitation or funeral service. Cremation has already taken place. A celebration in his honour will be planned for the future. No doubt there will be music. Heartfelt thanks to the staff of Michael Garron Hospital, Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital (10th floor), Spectrum Health Care, and Kensington Hospice for your excellent care and kindness during the past four months. As an expression of sympathy, donations to Kensington Hospice would be greatly appreciated by the family."
MARILYN LOUISE BARTLETT BRADY
Died : Jan 23, 2024
"MARILYN LOUISE BARTLETT BRADY passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 23, 2024 at the age of 78, surrounded by the love of her family and in the presence of her Lord. Marilyn was many things to many people. Dutiful daughter to Bernard and Bettie Bartlett, loving sister to Doug (Annalee,) devoted wife to Dwight, proud mother to Heather (Marshall Posner) and Robyn (Mike Regnier,) and adoring Grammie to Julian, Daniel, and Molly. Hers was a life well lived. Marilyn grew up in Fredericton, where she earned her Bachelor of Science from UNB before being whisked off to Ontario with her new husband. There they lived in Ottawa and London before putting down roots in Toronto. She kept busy raising her girls while working as a lab technician at Centennial College, moving up the ranks to Professor of Microbiology. She became a world traveller, going on adventures with the family, the Yorkminster Park Baptist Church choir, and alongside her beloved Dwight. Marilyn loved nothing more than to be surrounded by family, especially when they could breathe the sea air in St Andrews, NB. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy, and she soaked up every moment she could spend with them. After retirement, Marilyn filled her days with knitting, having tea with friends, playing Rummy-O and Scrabble, and watching her favourite shows, especially Big Bang Theory and Hudson \u0026amp; Rex, no matter how many times she\u0027d seen each episode. Marilyn will be fondly remembered by her dozens of cousins and extended family, many close friends, colleagues from Centennial College, YPBC choir members, and all who knew and loved her. The family would like to extend its gratitude to the network of friends and family who supported Marilyn throughout her cancer journey, including drives to and from appointments, those who cared for her after chemo, kept her company while in palliative care, and brought flowers, gifts, and Cheezies (and many other delicious treats!) Many thanks to Dr. Covens and the oncology team at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, and Dr. Selby and the amazing staff in the Palliative Care Unit. Donations to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Foundation or the Toronto Zoo Wildlife Conservancy would be appreciated. https://donate.sunnybrook.ca/palliativecare https://www.wildlifeconservancy.ca/donate Cremation has taken place. At Marilyn\u0027s request, a joint memorial with Dwight will be held at a later date to celebrate their lives together. Autumn in The Fields Of Language Without wind the yellow leaves hang slack. Maple, elm, and oak lift torches to the blue of heaven. A scarlet burning bush ignites the air. Evergreens comfort the eye, relief from all that fire and gold. When my last warm season\u0027s done and time\u0027s come to leave this world of words, bright fields of language where I play and sing, let flame in me some final brilliant work like autumn leaves in changing light. May I rejoice in having had my say. —Jeanne Lohmann"
