We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue

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 SimcoeObituaries.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 !

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!

Glass LauraGLASS, Laura Ellenor (nee Lang  - October 15, 1916 - May 14, 2018 - Peacefully at Trillium Manor, Orillia, in her 102nd year.

Beloved wife of the late Albert J. Glass, Provincial Court Judge.

Proud Nana of Jeff (Jen) and Amy, and Great Nana of Tyler and Victoria.

Survived by her dear youngest sister Jean Hopkins.

Predeceased by Martin, George, Mary Crossen, Amy Van Dusen, Howard and Don Lang.

From the family farm in Hamilton Twp, Northumberland County, Laura ventured at age 15 to Queen's University. She graduated in 1936 with an Honours B.A. in Mathematics and Physics. Laura taught High School in Markdale where she met Al, and in Picton, where they married in 1944.

Her passion for playing bridge resulted in the rank of ACBL Bronze Life Master.

The support of Helping Hands workers, and Laura's neighbours, Lynda & Dave Nichol and the Borelli family, enabled her to live in her home until the age of 97. Thank you all. Thank you to Peggy, Joan, Sandy and others at the Bridge Club for driving Mom to and from the games that kept her mind so active and made her so happy. Thank you to all at Champlain Manor and Trillium Manor who took such good care of Mom.

At Laura's request, a private family service has taken place.
