Why order flowers through us?

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, 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.

Obituary for Gail Anne Chellew

The family of Gail Chellew is saddened to announce her passing on Tuesday, November, 5, 2013, at her home in Port Perry, at age 70, after a courageous battle with cancer. Gail was born in Toronto in 1943, daughter of Frederick and Gladys Archer, and sister to Wayne (Brenda). Beloved wife to Peter and a loving mother to Megan (Dave), Ceara (Martin) and Erin. Gail's very full life included nurturing her daughters through various pursuits and challenges including figure skating, piano and English and Latin classes at Port Perry High School where she taught for many years. Gail's interests included the genealogy of the family clans, sewing, knitting and in her retirement, quilting. All this while co-producing the transformation of S.S. No. 9, the Yellow School to our family home. We wish to acknowledge the extraordinary support provided by family, friends, the staff of the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Region Cancer Centre, the staff of Central East CCAC and Saint Elizabeth, and particularly Dr. Sandra Hyshka and Dr. Steven Russell of Port Perry Medical Associates. We would enjoy reminiscing with family, friends and colleagues at the WAGG FUNERAL HOME, 216 Queen Street in Port Perry (905-985-2171) on Saturday, November 9th from 2 – 4 and 7 – 9 p.m. If desired, memorial donations may be made by cheque to the Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of your choice.
