Ordering through the funeral home helps ensure your order will be placed through a local flower shop with whom the funeral home has a personal and trusting relationship with. Through this service, you will be able to leave a longer message of support to the family via a card with the picture of your selection that will be included with your thoughtful gesture. As well as a photo of your arrangement and message will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender, allowing you the opportunity to choose a different arrangement if you wish.
The price of these selections also include the funeral home caring for the flowers after the funeral and delivering them to the family, or various care facilities where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.
Placeholder - to be replaced with Donations
We are proud to provide this service allowing friends and family to donate to any registered charity throughout North America. You will receive an official tax receipt immediately via email and your thoughtful gesture will remain on this memorial website in perpetuity.
The time surrounding a death can often bring unexpected final expenses for the family far beyond the funeral itself. We are pleased to offer the ability for friends and relatives to financially support the family during their time of loss as an alternative to flowers and other sympathy gestures.

HALL - Louisa Irene (Sandick) of Ingersoll Ave. in Woodstock, on Wednesday October 26, 2005 in her 100th year. Irene was born in Ingersoll on March 16, 1906, the eldest child of J. Ernest and Mary (Weir) Sandick. She spent her childhood on her parents’ dairy farm near Beachville. In her youth Irene was catcher on the well known Dunn’s ladies softball team, until she went off to Normal School, London, in 1925. In 1926, she began her teaching career in a small school in Lakehurst, north of Peterborough, and a year later she married John D. Hall of that community. Together they had six children - Douglas (Rhonda) of Montreal, Quebec, Pauline (Bob McLaren) of Hickson, Delbert (Sheila) of Innisfil, Richard (Janet) of Woodstock, Keith of Woodstock, and Dennis (Thea) of Hadashville, Manitoba. From 1934 to 1952 the family resided in Innerkip, where Irene was active in the United Church and various community events. After John’s death in 1953, Irene went back to teaching - serving in several Oxford County schools, among them Centreville, Southside, Beaconsfield, and Hickson. She loved children and could remember almost all of those she taught - long after her retirement in 1971. She kept mentally alert until her life’s end, enjoying scrapbooks and puzzles, scrabble and cards - usually beating her care-giver, Keith, quite handily. In addition to her children and their spouses, Irene is survived by twenty grandchildren and their spouses, thirty-three great grandchildren and spouses. She also has a sister Nell (Mrs. Alex) Hart. She is predeceased by brother Gordon Sandick (Elsie), and numerous life long friends and relatives with whom she shared her long and productive life. Friends and relatives are invited to join the family at the R.D. Longworth Funeral Home, 845 Devonshire Ave., Woodstock, 539-0004 on Friday October 28, 2005 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm, where a funeral service to celebrate Irene’s life will be held in the chapel on Saturday at 11:00 am with Rev. Margaret Murray the officiant. Interment in the Innerkip Cemetery. Contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario or the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
