Sincere sympathy to the family of Muriel Gibson, who passed away on July 27th. Muriel had celebrated her 99th birthday in March, and lived most of those years east of Greenbank, on concession 10, where she and her late husband Oscar farmed, and raise their family: Nancy, Jim, Brian, and Darlene. A service celebrating Muriel was held Monday, July 31st, at Wagg Funeral Home.
Glad to report Jean Rodd is home from Port Perry Hospital, and wish her continued better health.
After a lengthy stay in Southlake Hospital, Newmarket, following a fall in March, and hip surgery, then almost three months at the Newmarket Health Centre Rehab Wing, hubby Glen Till is home at last, since July 28th!
