Faris, Catherine (Kate) Anne obituary (long)

Event Date : Thursday, January 09, 1958
Event Type : Death

Description : The last member of one of the Scotch Settlement's most highly esteemed pioneer families, Miss Catherine (Kate) Faris, passed away at Bayview Convalescent Home, Langstaff, on January 9, 1958, in her 86th year. Because of advanced age, Miss Faris had been resident in the convalescent home for some time, but her health was remarkably good and she was up and about the home until a few days before her death, which resulted from a stroke. Miss Faris was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Faris of Maple Farm, that lovely Scotch Settlement farm owned later by her brother, the late William G. Faris, and now by her nephew, Murray Faris. She was born on that farm, attended No. 4 school and Bradford High School, and returned to the farm after school days to assist her mother. Later she retired to Bradford with her mother. A very kindly lady, interested in people, and especially young people, Miss Faris went to Toronto and became Y.W.C.A. secretary at Dundas House. She fulfilled her duties there most capably and was made superintendent at the Y.W.C.A. Pembroke House, a position she filled with ability and understanding for fifteen years. For about twenty years she lived retired in Toronto.Miss Faris was predeceased by four brothers, John, Peter, William G. and Edwin, and one sister, Mrs. John Sinclair (Jane). A sister-in-law, Mrs. W. G. Faris of Queensville, and nephews and nieces survive her. The funeral was held from the Lathangue-Kilkenny Funeral Home, Bradford, on Saturday, January 11, with interment in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Bradford. The services were in charge of Rev. Brailey, formerly of Glebe Road United Church, Toronto. The pallbearers were Jack Gibson, E. M. Faris, Robert Sinclair, Ken Wood, John Faris and Murray Faris.

Faris, Mrs. Gordon S. (Kathleen Moore) obituary

Event Date : Thursday, May 21, 1953
Event Type : Death

Description : The knowledge that Mrs. Gordon S. Faris was so seriously ill that hope was not extended for her recovery was only exceeded in sorrow and sympathy among the members of her family and her friends, by her passing at Deep River Hospital on Thursday, May 21. Mrs. Faris had been moved to the nearby hospital a few weeks before her death. A daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Moore of Queensville, as Kathleen Moore she taught in the High Schools of Penetanguishene and Aurora, and later, when teaching on Barrie Collegiate staff, she met and married Gordon S. Faris about sixteen years ago, while the latter was employed at the Eugenia Power Plant of the Ontario Hydro Commission. Shortly after their marriage they moved to Barrie and from there to Brampton where Mr. Faris was superintendent and where they resided for a number of years. From Brampton they were transferred to Toronto and later to Des Joachims, when Mr. Faris was made the first superintendent of that plant. Mrs. Faris made a full share of contribution to Mr. Faris' successful career, a success which resulted from his ability and conscientious fulfilment of duty. Equally conscientious, and amply qualified by virtue of her ability and educational training, Mrs. Faris was a willing, energetic and capable leader in all deserving projects in the communities in which they resided. Her most devoted energy was given in the interests of her church and especially in its missionary work. While residing in Brampton she was much in demand as a speaker at W.M.S., W.A. and farm group meetings. To the new settlement of Rolphton, at the Des Joachims plant, she took this enthusiasm and unselfish willingness to serve. She loved the life in that new village and an indication of her interests there was recorded in these columns two weeks ago in the story of the opening of the Rolphton Community Church.Mrs. Faris is survived by her husband, Gordon S. Faris of Rolphton (formerly of Maple Farm, Scotch Settlement), and their two children, Mary Lou, 13, and Paul, 11; one sister, Mrs. Sydney Thompson (Irene) of Queensville; and one brother, J. Dan Moore, of Georgetown. In their great loss the bereaved family have the sincerest sympathy of a wide circle of friends.The funeral was held on Monday afternoon from the Strasler Funeral Home, Queensville, and interment was in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Bradford. The services were conducted by Rev. E. Warren of Queensville, assisted by Rev. Hugh Shannon of Hawkstone and formerly of Queensville who is a personal friend of Mr. and Mrs. Faris, and by Rev. E. C. McLarnon of Bradford. The pallbearers were four friends, Ronald Sennett, William Burkholder and Terry Doane of Queensville, and William Hillaby of Newmarket; and two cousins, Morley Bedford and Sydney Gourlay of Toronto.

"Refused Promotion and Apparently Safer Task to Answer Call of Duty with Famous British 8th Army in Italy.
The toll of war has sacrificed a life which embodied all that was fine and noble and has brought a great loss, not only to his family and friends, but also among those to whom our fighting men will look for sane judgments in all the troublous days still to come, by the death in action in Italy of Lieut. Keith D. Fairs on May 24." ...
