BEDINGFIELD, Dolores (O'Toole)
Born In: Renews, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Born: September 27th, 1937
Passed in: Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States
Passed on: December 19th, 2018

Passed away in the presence of her family on December 19th, 2018, Dolores O'Toole Bedingfield of Tulsa, Oklahoma, formerly of Renews. Leaving to mourn her husband, Ben; her daughters Valery (husband Shaun); Siobhan (husband Hollis), and her grandsons Logan and Ted. All who reside in Tulsa, OK. Also left to mourn are her sisters Angela Burton, Geraldine O'Toole Norwood, Fidelma Hildreth and Charmaigne O'Toole Wegenest and her brothers Silver, Ted and Leslie O'Toole. Born in Renews in 1937, she was the eldest of Tom and Violet O Toole's (nee Lawlor) eight children. Her early childhood years were spent on the South Side of Renews Harbour, in the cradle of Quinlan's Hill. She was a child of imagination and unbridled curiosity. Reading was discovery and exploration on every page. The more she read the more she desperately longed to make her way in the wider world. She had no precise plan, but she knew she wanted an education. In 1954, at the age of 16, she won the inaugural scholarship for the electoral district of Ferryland, enabling her to attend the Memorial University on Parade Street. It is during her time in St. John's she met Ben, stationed there by the British Royal Navy. They were married in 1960 and after her graduation in 1960 they pursued opportunity where it presented itself. First it was Ottawa, then finally Tulsa, OK. She spent her working life in careers in academia and law. Upon retirement in the mid 1990's, she stakes a claim to the exact spot from which she started out. She built her summer home at the base of Quinlan's Hill in Renews. For 25 years, she cultivates her garden by the sea, from spring to fall, returning to the US in the winter. These are happy times for her, Ben and her O'Toole siblings who mark her arrival each year. Siblings follow with summer homes of their own. She helps usher in a new era within a Newfoundland family that had gone off in multiple directions. The one so eager to leave is the one who decides to come home. She makes up for lost time. Her mark is made. Her work is done. A memorial service is planned for a future time.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die
.

FRENCH, Edward
Born In: Canada
Born: September 16th, 1930
Passed in: Brea, California, United States
Passed on: December 5th, 2018

88, passed away December 5, 2018, at his La Floresta home in Brea, California. Clare died peacefully with his loving family by his side.
Mr. French was born on September 16, 1930 in Murray's Harbour, Newfoundland, Canada to Joseph and Effie French. Clare moved to Toronto in approximately 1948 where he began an over forty-year career at Illinois Tool Works. Clare's work at ITW began very humbly, unloading trucks. During his career, he traveled domestically and internationally, was the author of three patents, and became an Executive Vice President of Sales. It was at Illinois Tool Works that Clare met his future wife and love of his life, Glenna Joan French. Clare and Glenna were married on December 13, 1957. Clare and Glenna, along with their two children, Edward and Debra, relocated to Southern California in 1971.
A loving husband, father, grandfather and professional, Clare was a committed man who put his family first at all times. Clare travelled many months out of the year and, while doing so, he remained remarkably connected at home making phone calls every night, ensuring his wife and kids were thriving, even with his difficult schedule. Clare navigated travel and professional commitments while managing to be present at every school and sporting event for his children. Clare never met a stranger - everyone was his friend. He loved learning about people, enjoyed making new friends, cherished his older friendships, and was often the nexus for people meeting from around the world. When he wasn't travelling for work, Clare was constantly by his wife's side and was her biggest supporter as she took care of their home and children. Clare loved hockey and baseball, was an avid reader, and loved country music.
Clare was an amazing "Pahi" to his two granddaughters, Alexandria and Hannah and was immensely supportive and proud of his granddaughters.
Clare and Glenna enjoyed retirement in Arizona where they developed numerous friendships; actively RV'd, belonged to the Motorhome Club, Canada Club, Irish Club, and Bridge Club. Clare and Glenna enjoyed traveling and took many Crossings, cruises, lead and participated in caravans, and most cherished their time in Europe and Canada. Clare's favorite caravan was the one he and Glenna led to Newfoundland where he was able to share his cherished homeland with his dear friends. In retirement, Clare enjoyed golfing and long distance bike riding with his closest friends.
Clare was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Effie French and his beloved wife of sixty years, Glenna French, who died on June 29, 2018. Clare is survived by his son Edward (Jackie) French; daughter, Debra French; granddaughters, Alexandria DeGiuseppe and Hannah DeGiuseppe; and sister, Lillian Boone.
Services and a celebration of life will be scheduled for a future date. In the summer of 2019, Clare and Glenna will be taken to St. John's Bay in Newfoundland, Canada as their final resting place.
The family wishes to thank those who have extended their support in Clare's final journey during his courageous and graceful battle with Alzheimer's Disease. In honor of a life well-lived, the family asks that, in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to: Community Senior Services 141 Spring Street Claremont, California, 91711or through the website at www.communityseniorservices.org and press donate button. Please list Clare's name in the memo section.
Clare's love for his family and friends will be forever felt and we will carry him in our hearts always.

SPURRELL, Rosalie (Patey)
It is with great sadness that the family of Rosalie (Patey) Spurrell announces her peaceful passing in her 100th year, at James Paton Memorial Hospital. Rosalie was predeceased by her infant son Eric Vaughn; her parents Leslie and Amelia (Ash) Patey; her husband Eric; and sister Mary Patey. She leaves to mourn her daughter, Sharon; son Dennis (Dorothy) Patey; grandsons Dion (Darlene), Danny (Stacey) and Darren (Tina) Patey; her sister Violet Decker; brother Edmund Patey; nephew Glenn Patey and nieces Kathy (Colin) Morris, Janice (Paul) Kattenbusch and; long-time family friend Anne Cleaver; extended family and many friends. Born in St. Anthony, NL, she attended the first integrated school in the province, the Wilfred T. Grenfell School. At a young age she realized a great desire to work with young children which led to her life's work as a Primary school teacher taking her to Memorial College and various teaching positions. Eventually her calling brought her to Gander in 1950 for a one year teaching post that stretched into thirty years until her retirement in 1980. She loved her career as a teacher and never wanted to think of retirement. With many fond memories of her students, their parents, her colleagues, she often reminisced about her experiences, thankful to all who helped make her years of teaching so wonderful. Rosalie always maintained "Teaching is a very rewarding career". Throughout her years she played an active role in the community as a member of the Women's Institute where weaving was a passion, a volunteer at the hospital, Kiwanis Music Festival, and various other organizations. Rosalie was a member of the Elks Royal Purple Ladies, a long-time member of the Masonic Ladies Association and was a Lady Shriner. A great ambition for Rosalie was to see other lands which she fulfilled in her retirement travelling with family and/or friends in Canada, the USA, Great Britain, and Continental Europe. She was so happy to see firsthand many countries and landmarks that she had learnt about in her years of schooling. During these travels, she met new people and maintained many lasting friendships. Gardening and well-kept grounds were a "must" and a favourite hobby of Rosalie. Even after moving from her home on Hawker Crescent in 2006 to reside with her daughter, Sharon, she lovingly maintained her own little garden. When she was not gardening she was knitting some of the loveliest socks which have literally travelled all over the world. In the Fall of 2015 she moved to Golden Years Estates and resided there until May of this year. She made new friends, enjoying the residents and caregivers with whom she interacted. Thank you to Ursula Parsons and the staff who helped to make Rosalie, "the social butterfly" comfortable. Special thanks are also extended to Dr. Paulus and the staff at JPMH for their wonderful care. She was well looked after by some wonderful and loving people. Rested at Stacey's Funeral Home, Gander. Funeral service Saturday December 22nd 2:00 PM at St. Martins Anglican Cathedral, Gander. Interment All Saints Cemetery. Flowers are accepted or If anyone so wishes, donations may be made in Rosalie's name to Central Northeast Health Foundation (James Paton Memorial Hospital) 125 Trans-Canada Hwy, Gander, NL A1V 1P7 or to St. Martin's Cathedral 2 Lindbergh Road Gander NL.

Waiting to greet Phil in Heaven are his sister, Lisa, parents Anita Belanger (Merrill) and Charlie Veitch, grandparents Kennedy and Veitch, and members of his in-laws in the Ozon family. Phil leaves many, many loved ones mourning his loss, especially his two precious sons who he adored and was so proud of, Brian and Graham, and their mother, Joan, Marisol (Ris) Soledad, his partner in the Philippines who has always been kind and loving to Phil, especially during his illness. Also left to mourn are Phil's brother, Charles, in Toronto, step-father, Merrill Belanger (Judy) in Topsail, many aunts, uncles, and cousins in the Veitch and Kennedy families. Special friends missing Phil are Cyril and Randy Collins, Mike Corcoran, Ian Mercer, Pete Richards, and Albert White along with many colleagues from Irving and Canship-Ugland. Phil will also be forever missed by his good friends in the Philippines from the Panglao Motorcycle Club, especially Ralf and Kenneth. Phil talked to and about these friends every day while he was in Newfoundland earlier this year, and kept in close contact with these friends every day. They also helped care for Phil during his illness and showed their unconditional love and friendship toward him. Phil had a soft spot for strays and his six dogs will surely miss him too, especially Wesley and Willow. Funeral and burial will take place in the Philippines. A memorial service will be held at a later date in St. John's honoring Phil's memory. Donations may be made in Philip's memory to the John Howard Society, or any charity of choice.
May he forever rest in peace!
I see the smiling faces
I know I must have left some traces (Led Zepplin)

Miss Me but Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me,
I want no tears in a gloom-filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little - But not for long
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me - But let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone,
It's all a part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to your friends that we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good works,
Miss me - But let me go.
"Thanks for everything!" Mike
