GRAHAM, Grace (Falcone) Grace Graham

It is with grieving hearts that the family of Maria Grazia (Grace) Graham announces her peaceful passing at Kensington Hospice on October 13, 2016 in her 68th year, after her courageous battle with glioblastoma brain cancer.

Grace is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Roy, and her two daughters Stefanie and Jessica (Alexander Melfi) Graham, her sister Antonietta (Pompeo) Puligese, her brother Phil (Kim) Falcone, along with many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her Father, Michele (1983) and Mother, Rosa Maria Falcone (2015).

Grace was born in Roseto Valfortore, Italy in 1947 and immigrated to Hamilton at the age of 12 with her family. A long time resident of Ancaster, Grace always loved her garden and found pleasure in her pristine property, often winning Trillium Awards for her detailed and colourful garden beds.

Grace turned this passion into a business and in 1997, at the age of 50 decided to go back to school and learn about flower arranging. After graduating from the University of Guelph, Floral Design Course, Grace and Roy opened Visions from the Heart in the heart of downtown Hamilton. Grace embodied her business name when designing wedding arrangements, funeral memorials, birthday arrangements, and gifts for her beloved customers and friends.

Previous to that Grace served many years at the Royal Bank of Canada, where she took great pride in her relationships and connections with her clients. Once retired, Grace could be found sun tanning, walking the beaches collecting shells and sea glass, and hesitantly getting in the speed boat with Roy for a cruise around the gulf in South West Florida.

Grace enjoyed her last few years spending the winters in Florida where she found friendship in her neighbours, shopped for anything and everything, and planted and nurtured all the tropical flowers she loved.

Those who knew her will miss her smile, laugh, stories and without fail, her love. Grace was a force and the world will not be the same without her. As per her wishes, Grace has been cremated. In lieu of flowers the family has requested that you make a donation to the Kensington Hospice in her name.

A Celebration of Life will take place on October 20, 2016 at the Sheraton Hotel, 116 King Street West, Hamilton (905-529-5515) from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.. The family requests that you bring a happy memory, full heart and big smile to celebrate our Grace.

Grant Stanley Robert (Sandy) Ailles
(no image)
1932-01-27 - 2016-09-16

Born January 27, 1932 in Toronto, ON, he lived a full life and succumbed to natural causes on September 16, 2016. He is survived by his children Ginger, Jennifer, Susan and Patrick and their families, step-brother Charles Hill, sister-in-law Isobel Ailles, and cousins Douglas Ailles and Marilyn Worobec. Predeceased by his wife Diane, sons Michael and Stuart, his brother James, step-sister-in-law Pat Hill, and parents Mary Margueretta (nee Goodman), Wilbert and Francis (nee MacDonald).

He served over 20 years in the Royal Canadian Air Force (North Bay, ON, Arvida, QC, 2 Wing Zweibrücken, German, Penhold AB, and Centralia and Base Borden, ON) and then retired to another full-time career with Kimberley-Clark in Huntsville, ON, where he worked as an electrician and instrumentalist for over 20 years.

He loved hockey and played, coached, and organized tournaments all through his service days and into the Old-timer leagues in Ontario and British Columbia. The Lions Club (and hockey) became a way for Sandy to serve the larger community once he and his family moved to Dorset after his retirement from the RCAF.

The most substantial project that he was involved in was the realization of Lions Camp Dorset—a family holiday camp for renal dialysis patients built near Dorset by the Lions clubs (mostly of Ontario) and volunteers. From conception, to the handing over of the working facility onto the next generation, Camp Dorset was his baby.

True retirement was in Penticton, BC with more hockey, Lions projects, playing bridge, bingo and making music with his multi-keyed harmonica. With the death of his beloved Diane, he moved into nursing care in Penticton.

Friends will be received at the Ridley Funeral Home, 3080 Lake Shore Blvd. W. (at 14th St., between Islington and Kipling Aves., 416-259-3705) on Saturday October 1st from 10-11am. Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel at 11am. Burial at Mount Pleasant Cemetery (375 Mt Pleasant Rd., Toronto).

In lieu of flowers: donations to Lions Camp Dorset, “Ailles Family Recreation Hall,” PO Box 306, 1087 Camp Dorset Rd, Dorset, ON P0A 1E0. Tax receipts for any donation over $20.00 Canadian. Messages of Condolence may be placed at
