Van Rooyen, Susan obituary

Event Date : Monday, August 05, 1963
Event Type : Death
Municipality : Jackson's Point, Ont.

Description : Susan Van Rooyen, 15, of Bradford, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Van Rooyen, Frederick Street, was drowned early Monday morning in Lake Simcoe, near the Black River, while in for a swim before breakfast with her brother, John, and a friend, Beverley Williamson, also of Bradford and about the same age. According to report, the young people were not in deep water but Susan was swept off her feet by a wave. Coroner Dr. C. S. Noble of Sutton, who has seen the same area claim three lives in as many years, said the beach area at the mouth of the Black River in Mossington's Park should be posted as dangerous. John Van Rooyen said his sister, wading in shoulder-deep water, suddenly started slipping into deeper water, screaming that something was dragging her. When he went to help her she grabbed him by the throat, and he barely managed to avoid being pulled under with her. Police believe Susan, a fair swimmer, may have been pulled off her feet by the river's undertow. Her body was found about an hour later.

Terry, Mildred Averill obituary

Event Date : Wednesday, May 19, 1965
Event Type : Death
Municipality : Cairo, Egypt

Description : A former West Gwillimbury Township girl was one of the two Canadians who died in the jet liner crash a few miles from Cairo, Egypt, last Wednesday, when 121 persons lost their lives. The other was her husband. The couple who perished are Mr. and Mrs. George Terry, whose home was in Elmvale, and Mrs. Terry was the former Mildred Averill, second daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Walter Averill, both of whom belonged to well known families from the Bond Head district, although Mr. and Mrs. Averill lived on Concession 9, West Gwillimbury, on what is known as the Taylor farm, and it was there that Mildred Averill and her eight brothers and sisters were born and spent their childhood. The death of Mrs. Averill, the former Murl Harvey, in the early 1940's left this big family of children motherless, but they were reliable and resourceful people and the care by the older ones for the younger won the admiration of neighbours and other friends. Mildred was the third in the family and the second among the girls. She attended Bradford High School for three years before the family left the township, and after graduation from school she went into training, for her chosen profession of nursing, at St. Joseph's Hospital, Toronto. As a graduate nurse Mildred Averill returned to her native county and nursed in Barrie and the Barrie district, where she met and married George Terry of Elmvale. Doing engineering work with a big construction company working for the Columbo Plan, Mr. Terry had been sent to different parts of the world and Mrs. Terry had been in the habit of accompanying him. In this way they had travelled widely, having resided for a period in South Africa before going to the Far East. About three years ago Mr. Terry was sent to Decca, Pakistan, and about a year later Mrs. Terry and their only son, Bill, followed him, but the conditions and the climate in that land were found unsatisfactory for both the health and education of the boy and about a year ago he was sent back to Mrs. Terry's sister, Mrs. Spence, of Barrie, and was entered in St. Andrew's College, Aurora. The families of both Mr. and Mrs. Terry knew that they were returning from Pakistan, but young Bill had not been told, they believing that the excitement of the anticipation of a reunion with his parents would interrupt his studies at examination time. Mr. and Mrs. Terry had reached Cairo on the return trip and boarded the ill-fated jet, ahead of schedule booking, when they discovered two seats were available. Twelve-year old Billy Terry was taken from school to the home of his aunt, Mrs. Spence, at Barrie, where he was told the sad news and on Sunday evening, with other members of the families and many sympathizing friends, attended a memorial service in Elmvale. This week he is back in school in St. Andrew's. Mr. Terry is survived by his mother in Elmvale and two sisters. Mrs. Terry leaves two brothers, Edward and Robert, and five sisters, Jean, Edith, Helen, Velma and Anne. Another brother, John predeceased her. Mr. D. K. Harvey, clerk-treasurer of Tecumseth Township, is an uncle of Mrs. Terry, being a brother of her late mother.

Langford, Peter obituary

Event Date : Saturday, August 25, 1962
Event Type : Death

Description : About 5 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, August 25, little Peter Langford, nine years old last month, was struck by a car while he was walking several feet off the paved section of Highway 88, when returning from the home of his grandparents to his own home, two farms distant, and was instantly killed. Peter was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Keith Langford, R.R 1, Bradford. The tragedy occurred in front of the Smelser farm, now occupied by Mr. and Mrs. James McClocklin, and the only farm between the Langford farms, and opposite the home of Mr. Milton Ritchie. These neighbours rushed to the scene, but nothing could be done for little Peter. A few minutes later, Mrs. Langford, driving into town, came on the accident. The Provincial Police were busy investigating. Horrified, she recognized her little boy. Somehow she managed to turn her car and take the pitiful news home to her husband and the older brother.Keith and Ella Langford had three sons, William (Billie), who is 10; Peter was 9 in July, and Donnie is 4. Peter was the ever-on-the-go, little farmer of the family. He went to school happily and liked his teachers and his playmates, but he was the first up in the morning lest he would miss any possible farm activities around the barn before going to school, and farm stock and machinery were his delight. He had a bicycle but was not permitted to ride it on the highway because of the danger. Saturday afternoon he had his own little errand to his grandparents' home and was returning evidently walking where he should have been safe, when he was killed.Peter had sweet little ways and everyone loved him. At home he was the constant companion of his father, having almost adult intelligence and knowledge regarding farm work and business.According to the police the driver of the car which struck and killed little Peter Langford was Nick Pocius,
Lot 4,
Concession 2, West Gwillimbury Township, R.R. 2, Tottenham. He was arrested at the scene of the accident and charged with criminal negligence, dangerous driving, drunk driving, careless driving and having liquor in a place other than his residence.The accident was investigated by O.P.P. John C. Perkins assisted by O.P.P. A. J. Mason of the Bradford O.P.P. Detachment.The funeral was held yesterday afternoon in Bradford United Church and interment was in Bond Head Cemetery. Rev. F. G. MacTavish conducted the funeral services.The pallbearers were five uncles of little Peter, Stewart Langford, George Hawley, Alvin Hawley, Ira Hawley, Lloyd Hawley, and Ian Porter.The flower bearers were school classmates of Peter.The fact that the attendance at the funeral of this little child was one of the largest seen in Bradford in many years indicated how deeply the entire community was touched by the tragedy.
