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 WaterlooObituaries.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!

Spencer MarySPENCER, Mary Barbara  -  Passed away peacefully on Monday, May 14, 2018, at Barnswallow Place in Elmira, Ontario in her 95th year.

Predeceased by her husband, Frank Spencer and her siblings Alice Frawley and Morgan O’Connor.

Beloved mother of Mark and Cordell and grandmother to Ruth, Vance, Katie, and Patrick Spencer. 

Dear Aunt to many, including Mary Helen Frawley, Paddy Newton, Cathy Braden, Riley O’Connor, Megan O’Connor, Matt Spencer, Joan Turner, and close to many other cousins, nieces, nephews and their children.

Mary will be fondly remembered by many. She was lively and active, and enjoyed a wide variety of experiences in her life. Born in Dundalk, Ontario in 1923, Mary spent many years in Toronto, and over 20 years in Montreal, before retiring to Elmira with her husband Frank, in the 1980s.

Mary held many and varied jobs - a teacher, an accountant for a steakhouse, a railroad comptroller, a gift store owner, and an executive assistant. She managed her own investments until the age of 90, was very active socially, and volunteered in the church and the communities where she lived. She particularly enjoyed spending time with relatives, playing bridge, reading, and international travel.

The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the staff at Barnswallow Place and Chartwell Elmira for the compassionate care they provided for the last few years of her life, and to the many relatives and friends who visited her.

Visiting will take place on Friday, May 18, 2018 from 3-6 p.m. at Dreisinger funeral home, Elmira. Funeral mass will be celebrated on Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 2 p.m., at St. Teresa RC Church, 19 Flamingo Dr., Elmira, with interment in St. Teresa’s RC Cemetery, RR 1, Elmira. Reception to follow at the Elmira Golf Club, 40 Eldale Rd., Elmira.
