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!

VANDERLEEUW, Matje Annie 'Marsha' - On July 31, 2018, Marsha VanderLeeuw (nee Batenburg/Vander Kooi), at age 84, passed away peacefully at Sunset Manor, Collingwood.

Marsha was born on April 30, 1934 in Aalsmeer, Netherlands and immigrated to Canada in the early 50’s with her parents and four brothers.

Marsha is predeceased by her first husband Steffen Vander Kooi (1977) and Wietse Vander Leeuw (2017).

She will be greatly missed and forever loved by her children Aggie (Rick), Ed (Jackie), Rose (Rob) and predeceased by son Stan.

A wonderful “OMA” to 11 grand children and 9 great-grand children.

She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile and her never-ending handiworks…everyone has a knitted afghan from Oma.

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, August 3, 2018 @ 12:30 p.m. at Sunset Manor Chapel, Collingwood performed by life long friend Joel Jongkind.

A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to all the wonderful and supportive staff at Sunset Manor and her “roomy”-Brenda … who was ‘like a sister she never had’.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Parkinsons Society Canada.
