Toronto, ON

The Griner family are saddened to announce the passing of Bill (William) Alan Griner. Son of the late William Alfred Griner and Edythe Ruth nee Pallister. Beloved husband to Helen Marie Nee Pearson and greatest Dad to John and Helena. Loving Grandad to Chloe and Ivy. Fond brother of Audree Wilson and uncle to Pat, Nancy, Susan, Carol and Bill. Bill grew up in Calgary until his family moved to Toronto in 1952. Sad to leave his friends, Bill completed high school and followed in his fathers footsteps into the high end men’s clothing business. He was an entrepreneur and creative business man, opening stores of his own and he often discussed business strategies and solutions with his friends. Regarded as a true gentleman with a memorable smile, Bill was a man of few words; but these words came with much wisdom and love. He was known for his impressive Donald Duck impression, sense of humour and his story telling ability. Famously known for the story of he and his father canoeing on Lake Moraine, where they encountered a feeding moose. As the moose raised its massive head above Bill’s father, soaked with water from the reeds hanging off its impressive antlers, he quietly stuttered, B,b,b,b, back paddle.. b, b, b, back paddle! Bill enjoyed attending Argo games with his two closest friends and Blue Jays games with his family, for many years. He developed a love for golf, both playing and watching. He especially treasured the time spent on the Green, with his dearest wife Helen, always aiming for that hole in one. Bill was tremendously loved and will be sorrowfully missed by many. We love you Dad and know you are at peace and smiling again, being reunited with Mum. Forever in our hearts. Interment to be held at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, followed by a celebration of life to be decided at a later date.

Toronto, ON

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
