Wilma  Fleming (nee Allen)


                                              Wilma  Fleming (nee Allen)

                                                                                         January 18, 1929 – August 2, 2019

The warmest of hearts, Wilma Fleming (nee Allen) was a gentle soul who loved deeply and unconditionally. She passed away peacefully at the age of 90 on August 2, 2019. Family and friends were her passion and delight. 
The centre of Wilma's life was James Fleming, her loving husband of 65 years and their children, Marnie (Colin), Janet (Martin) and Thomas (Liz), along with five adoring grandchildren: Shane, Cole, and Brett Kierdorf and Kate and Quinn Fleming. 
Wilma was born in Windsor, Ontario in 1929 and lived in this city she called "home" for most of her life. Her sister Bernice (Morris) and many close cousins brought her endless joy and comfort. 
Wilma was a gifted educator specializing in reading readiness and literacy skills. Her talents quickly led her to a position as primary school coordinator for the Sandwich West School Board. She loved teaching and was well-loved by her students. Early married life found Wilma thriving in Leamington, Ontario in another role, that of motherhood. 
In 1977 she obtained a BA from the University of Windsor and graduated the same day as her oldest daughter. She continued to teach both for the Windsor Hebrew Day School and the Windsor Board of Education. 
She appreciated the interaction between learning and play and always encouraged her children to explore and embrace different cultures. Extended camping trips remain a source of family lore. While her artistic inclinations were many, she shone the brightest with her beautiful home and garden. She called her grandchildren "the flowers of our garden." 
Wilma embraced sports both as a participant and as a spectator. Her allegiance to the Detroit Tigers started as a young girl and continued with spring training trips to Florida. She not only supported the Tigers as a spectator but cheered loudly for her kids and grandkids at countless sporting events. 
Wilma and Jim travelled to many beautiful countries but their rustic Lake Superior cottage was her special place; a devoted dog always at her side. Here, at day's end, the Algoma sunsets gave her much pleasure and contentment. She lived a long life of tenderness, kindness and compassion. 
The family wishes to thank Wilma's personal care givers: Linda, Jane, Stacey, Kelsey and Lisa for their compassion and care over these many months. A heartfelt thank you to Danijela Stankovic for her dedication, friendship and support. If you so desire, donations to Brain Injury Association Windsor Essex, Youth Support Group or to Paulin Memorial Presbyterian Church would be appreciated by the family.

Alan Crundwell special






CRUNDWELL, Alvin “Al” Idris 

Peacefully on March 14, 2019, Al passed into the arms of his Lord and Saviour. Cherished husband and best friend of Mariann (Hodgson). Beloved father of their children Marc (Cindy), David, and Leslee (Michael Martell). Loving grandfather to Brenden, Brianna, Chelsea, Katie, Aubry, and Cole. Brother of Edwin (Alvina) and David (Lorette) of Chatham. Predeceased by this brother Don, and his four sisters Elsie, Dilys, Gwen, and Elaine. Brother-in-law of Mae Hodgson, Glenyce Graham, Alice Robertson, Dorothy Wright, Jane Seguin, and Pete and Margaret Hodgson. Uncle too many nieces and nephews. Special “Mr. C.” to Jessica, Caitlin, and Brady.
Al retired from Canada Border Services Agency after 35 years of dedicated service, having taken on many different roles. Al was a superintendent at the Windsor-Detroit Tunnel at the time of his retirement. Al was an avid stamp collector, building an extensive collection, especially stamps representing the Scouting movement. Al served over 60 years with Scouts Canada as a leader, receiving the Chief Scout's Award, which is the highest award which can be achieved at the Scout level in Scouts Canada. He enjoyed attending the Canadian Scout Jamboree’s across Canada to meet with fellow scouts from Canada and other countries. Al also enjoyed fishing and hunting, and spending time in nature. Al lived to follow his grandchildren in their sports and activities. He could be found supporting them at the arena, at the soccer field, at dance recitals, and at cheer competitions in the Windsor-Essex area, as well as also traveling across the province to support them. He was their greatest supporter and they looked forward to seeing him at all of their events. No matter where Al went, he always managed to strike up a conversation with others. He was known for his gift of talking, and his family always had to wait to leave until he was done talking with everyone. Those whom he spoke with always remembered their “chats” with him, and especially his dry humour and his wit.
Al always lived his life based on a quote he found early in his life: “A person’s most useful asset is not a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen, and a hand willing to help others.” – Unknown Author. Al truly lived this every day, and there was no one he would not listen to, or go out of his way to help.

 Eric  E. Sahli

        May 9, 1925 – October 12, 2018


He may not have attained his goal of reaching his 100th birthday, but in his 93 years, Eric achieved more than he ever could have imagined. On Friday, October 12, 2018, the family of Eric Sahli lost, but is celebrating, an incredible man.

Eric was predeceased by his much-loved partner in life Gerry (2015), his wife of 63 years. Together they raised four children who will always be grateful for their unwavering teamwork of living by example through love, laughter and integrity. Dad’s memory will always live on in the hearts, and senses of humour of Sandra & Jim Fazackerley, Marc, Pamela & Brent Hanson, Ellen & Ian Murray and his beloved daughter-in-law Jean. His children hope he knew how very proud we were to say, “That’s my Dad”.

Papa Eric’s grandchildren never ceased to be a constant source of joy and pride. He will be dearly missed by Brian Sahli (Joanna), Nicole Seguin (Bobby), Mary Anne Murray (Joey) and Andrew Murray. Great-Papa Eric will be watching over his beautiful great-grandaughters Ruby, Lucy & Molly. Eric will also be fondly remembered by his “daughters-of-his heart”, Anne Boden and Sherry Richmond (who even in Eric’s last years never did manage to beat him at poker), his many nieces and nephews, as well as his extended family of Elsie Murray, Adrian Scott and Jay & Lilliian Woltz.

Predeceased by his siblings and in-laws Elva & Jerry Kostal, Margaret & Brent Tape, Glenn & Lois Sahli, Jim & Lillian McColman, Mary & Mickey McDermott and Danny & Margaret McColman.
After his service with the Royal Canadian Air Force, he began his long and successful career with the CN Railway. He retired in 1986. Eric served as an Elder at Forest Glade Presbyterian Church and was a member at Paulin Memorial Presbyterian Church.

As his wife, Gerry, would often point out, life for Eric was not all work. He was an accomplished golfer, loved bowling and playing cards. In memory of Eric, during the next few days hold open a door for someone, chat with the person behind you in the grocery store line or just give a friendly smile to a stranger. Eric would like that, because that is exactly how he lived out his Christian faith.
