We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue PeterboroughObituaries.com.

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

Sponsors are welcome to participate and support PeterboroughObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please  contact us for info!

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.

We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

Dasko HelenDASKO, Helen (Nee Yascheshyn) - On Friday, June 8, 2018, in Peterborough, Ontario, Helen Dasko passed away at the age of 90.

She was born October 10, 1927 in Melrose, Manitoba.

Helen is survived by her loving husband William (Bill), daughters Donna and Tricia (Howard), grandchildren Marion & William Dasko Adams, sister Violet Kerde of Winnipeg, and many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents Regina (Agnes) and John Yascheshyn, brothers Frank, Casey & Johnny Yascheshyn and sisters Jean Sawicki, Kay Kazina and Emily Jackson.

Many thanks to Dr. A. Silverberg and the staff at St. Joseph at Fleming Long Term Care for their kindness and care during Helen's last years.

As one of Jehovah's Witnesses for almost 50 years, she enjoyed sharing with others the Bible's promise that God's Kingdom will soon bring peaceful and paradise conditions to the earth, when God will 'wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore.

The former things have passed away'. Rev 21:4

Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 2137 Davis Road, Peterborough, Ontario, on Saturday, June 16, 2018, 1 pm.
