“ Dessie”

Passed away peacefully on June 21, 2019 with family by her side at the age of 82. Dear wife of the late Colin. Cherished mother of Lynn (Rob). Adored grandmother of Gwyneth and Jaxon. She will be greatly missed by all her dear family and friends. There is a saying to be born Welsh is to be born privileged not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but music in your blood and poetry in your soul. Dessie was largely involved in the Windsor Light Opera and St Andrew’s Anglican Church which brought her pleasure and enriched her life in many ways. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday June 29, 2019 at 11am at St Andrew’s Anglican Church (205 Laurier Drive). Memorial Donations in memory of Dessie may be made to St. Andrew’s Church Food Bank.

Dessie was very welcoming when I joined Windsor Light in 1988. We had moments during rehearsals and during shows that I will always cherish. May she rest in peace and I send my condolences to her family.

Dessie was a kind, funny, talented and genuine woman. She was welcoming to me as young new member of Windsor Light and was an incredible wife, mother and grandmother. Dessie would come to my shows and I don’t know who had more fun! Gweneth? Or Dessie taking such delight in her granddaughter! She will be deeply missed and remembered.

A very sad loss. Dessie was a wonderful friend, full of compassion, understanding and always concerned for others. One of my favourite memories is when I, along with several others, were helping Dessie declutter and get her home ready for selling and her subsequent move. Oh we had so many laughs together.... before, during and after! I will miss her greatly. My deepest sympathy to you Lynn and your family. I hope that your many memories will give you all some comfort during the difficult days ahead. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
