Why order flowers through us?

Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement 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. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.

The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

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.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

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.

Financial Support

A Helping Hand

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.

This memorial currently does not have financial support enabled.

Obituary for Leonora Paxton

PAXTON, Leonora “Norie” Marguerite – Passed away peacefully at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket on Sunday July 16, 2017 in her 89th year. Loving wife, and partner of Basil Joseph Paxton for 68 years. Beloved mother of Patricia (Ray), Michael (Frances) and Robert (Stacey). Proud grandma of Christopher, Shannon, Andrew, Jordan, and Jenna. She was loved and will be missed by her nieces and nephews. Leonora is survived by her sister, June Duncan (Mike).
Her husband, children and grandchildren were her life. Leonora took great pride in her home, her beautiful gardens and was also a wonderful baker. She was a very hard-working woman who worked side by side with her husband when they had a working farm in Oak Ridges. As her mobility became an issue she always had a smile, a great sense of humour and a positive attitude and determination to keep going, thus earning her the nickname “The Energizer Bunny.”
Special thanks to the caring staff in TCU at Southlake. Friends may call at the Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home, 157 Main Street South, Newmarket for visitation on Monday July 24, 2017 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. followed by a funeral mass at St. John’s Chrysostom Church, 432 Ontario Street, Newmarket at 12noon. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Online condolences at www.roadhouseandrose.com
