John Gallington Jenkins

Jack passed away peacefully just before midnight on Saturday, October 20 in his 96th year, at Hospice Sjælland in Roskilde, Denmark. Jack was born in Alberta in 1923 to Stewart and Lillian Jenkins, and raised there by his paternal grandparents, though he rarely returned after joining the Army. He enlisted as a private at the beginning of World War Two by adding a year to his age. He spent time in England and on the lands of the Duke of Argyll in Scotland preparing for battle in Europe. He liked to tell of defending his men against the Duke’s charge of deer poaching. Jack felt the best defence was a good offence and won the day, soon after that sharing in a meal of roast venison. An order to return to Canada for officer training caused him to miss D-Day, something he quietly regretted but for which his descendants are grateful.

He received his commission in 1945, less than six months before the war’s end. His opportunity for action came with the Korean War. While serving with The Royal Canadian Regiment in Korea in 1954, he was awarded the Military Cross in “recognition of gallantry.” As a member of The Canadian Guards, he acquired the nickname “Jolly Jack.” He demanded much from his men but gave them respect and consideration in return. Jack risked his life on behalf of his comrades in Korea, not the last time he put his own safety second to that of others.  He also served with the UN in the Middle East prior to his retirement from the military with the rank of Major.

Jack’s post-retirement life took him to Denmark with his second wife, Kirsten and their son, Christopher. He worked for eighteen years at Roskilde University, and was legendary for never missing a day on the job. Jack was a great favourite among students and faculty, who enjoyed the opportunity to practice their English at the expense of his ability to master Danish. However, he enjoyed life in Denmark, the chance to travel in Europe and the U.K., and frequent visits from family and old friends from the military. He was stoic in the face of illness and declining strength, and kept his sense of humour to the end.

Jack is survived by his beloved wife, Kirsten Jenkins, his children Jonni (Bruce), Beverley, and Stewart (Sherine) from his first marriage, and Christopher (Hanne) from his second, as well as grandchildren Jacqui, Arran, Hailey, Laura and Casper.  He was predeceased by his first wife, Mary.  Remembrances may be sent to Jonni at and these will be forwarded to family in Canada, Denmark and Australia.

Edwin William Wellstood

Passed away early in the morning on Friday October 19th in his 92nd year after a long journey with Alzheimer’s disease. In his heart, Edwin was first and foremost a soldier. He enlisted as a young man and began his career as a private. More than 40 years later he retired as a major. As a member of the Canadian Guards and then the Royal Canadian Regiment he served tours in Britain, Germany, Israel, Syria, Cyprus, Tanzania and Vietnam as well as many posts in Canada. After his retirement he took on extra work with the Canadian Forces and earned a promotion to Lieutenant Colonel. Retiring from the army was the saddest thing in his life; he missed it profoundly even decades after he left.

He was a loving, caring husband to Rosemary, his wife of 49 years, a loving and supportive father to his son David, and a doting grandfather to his grandson Liam. He will be sorely missed by his daughter-in-law Tammy. He was predeceased by his mother Kathleen, his father Edwin and his brother Allen.

He grew up in Toronto but over his life he made homes in: Oromocto, Petawawa, Ottawa, Trenton, Belleville, Kitchener and others. He always enjoyed returning to the family cottage on Gull Lake where he liked to dip his feet in the water and enjoy the beauty of the trees.

He was a charming, gentle and polite man and he connected easily with people: especially those with ties to the military or to places where he had traveled. Even as Alzheimer’s stripped away the layers of his personality, he remained a gentleman: polite and charming. He always wanted to reach out and hold hands with anyone who visited or cared for him.

For several years, he participated in the Adult Day Program at the Downtown Community Centre in Kitchener, where he was well known for his dapper dress. He always wore a shirt, a regimental tie and a jacket. Dressing “properly”, as he would say, remained a priority for him even as his illness took so much from him.

We will miss Edwin dearly.

Edwin's family will receive guests at the home of David Wellstood 452 Knightsbridge Crt, Waterloo on Thursday Oct 25 from 7-8:30pm.  Please dress casually.

Condolences for the family or donations to the Hospice of Waterloo Region may be arranged through the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo, N2J 1P7, at or 519-745-8445.

Obituary of Marianne Clark

In Loving Memory of Marianne Lilith Clark 1937 - 2018

Marianne Clark (nee Wilson) passed away on Monday, September 17, 2018, at Miramichi Lodge, Pembroke, after a long battle with Alzheimer's. She was the beloved wife of Howard Clark, and dear mother of Diane (Ian MacLachlan) of Lethbridge, AB, and of Darlene Sinnott (Patrick) of Toronto. Marianne had a special relationship with her only granddaughter, Kathleen.

She will be fondly remembered by Howard's siblings, Bessie Johnstone (Jim) of New Glasgow, NS; Barbara Kleinsteuber, Carolyn Mitchell, and Marilyn Clark, of West Lake ON; Mac Clark (Donna) and Ken Clark (Connie) of Wellington ON; and Sylvia Currie (Patrick) of Renfrew ON, and their families. She is also fondly remembered by the families of Howard's siblings and their spouses who predeceased her, Jack Clark (Theresa); Gladys Miller (Wilfred); and Thelma Mathews (Derek).

Marianne spent her childhood in Wellington, ON and was predeceased by her parents, Earl and Mary Wilson (nee Grass), and her brother Richard. As a teenager, Marianne moved to Toronto to attend business college. Introduced to each other by mutual friends, Marianne and Howard wed on Dec. 15, 1956. During the first three decades of their marriage, Howard's military career meant that they called many places home: Petawawa ON (twice); Picton ON, Germany (twice), Oakville ON (twice), Gagetown NB, and Carrying Place ON. The frequent moves, and the family's numerous trips, both in North America and in Europe, were well-planned, eagerly-anticipated adventures, thanks to Marianne's superior organizational skills, her calm demeanour, and her willingness to set off anywhere with Howard by her side.

In retirement, Howard and Marianne moved yet again, first to Belleville ON and then to Pembroke, as they transitioned into a new yearly cycle: winter in Florida 1989-2015; spring in their Pembroke condo; summer at their cottage on the Ottawa River, and road trips West almost every fall, 1989-2008. They also made wonderful memories on their retirement journeys to Japan, Thailand, Mexico, Scotland, and England. As Marianne's vision and memory declined, she was cared for with great devotion by Howard.

Howard, Diane and Darlene are grateful to the staff of Miramichi Lodge for their attentive care of Marianne over the past two years.

Interment in The National Military Cemetery at Beechwood Cemetery,  If so desired, donations in Marianne's memory may be made to Miramichi Lodge Foundation or to the Dementia Society of Canada (formerly Alzheimer's Society of Canada).  Online donations and condolences are available at

Maxine Weedle  May 15, 1929 - September 05, 2018 It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Maxine Weedle on Wednesday September 5, 2018. Maxine was 89 years old and was pre-deceased by Paddy, her loving husband of 64 years. She is survived by their three children, Michael (Nancy), Stephanie St Pierre (Roger) and Cindy. She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren Caitlin and Madeline Weedle, Patrick and Nicholas St Pierre and Jacqueline Prior, and by her sister-in-law Maire Weedle and family of Ireland.

Maxine was originally a native of Kingston, Ontario. With Paddy’s military career their early life involved numerous postings in Canada and Europe. Eventually, the family settled in Oakville. Maxine and Paddy were active and engaged with their family, friends and community. Maxine will be lovingly remembered for her energy, kindness and compassion.

A special thanks to the staff at St Joseph’s Villa in Dundas, who were so loving and caring.

Corporal Robbins received the United Nations Service Medal, Korea Medal, United Nations Cyrus, and the Canadian Forces Decoration. Being the adventurer he began a real estate career for Keith Reality and hung his shingle in Deseronto for two years. He and his family then settled in Picton where he would call home for a few years with his own real estate business, owning Shelter Valley Trailer Park until he began working for the GOVT as a Property Manager. Sol worked at Queen’s Park, married Ruby and built his log home in the Park with pride. Sol received his Golden Handshake from Queen’s Park, after managing housing for the Ministry at Prince Edward Heights. He travelled, continued to look after the Park with his partner Eileen, changed homes several times, and built an off-the-grid cabin at Point Petre which gave him lots of solitude and joy. Despite living the last 8 years with Alzheimer’s, he sought out comfort and happiness cuddling and walking his dogs in nature (Jake, cat Charlie), and of course his greatest accomplishment, his pride and joy, being a father to his children. Cremation has taken place as Sol wished.  In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society would be appreciated.

Shirley Carlson 27 November, 1924 –12 January 2018, age 93. Physiotherapist, church organist, gracious hostess, friend, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother.

Shirley died in Rideaucrest Home, Kingston after several months of gentle decline. Born in Mankato, Minnesota, she was the daughter of a papermaker, Parker Faler, and his wife Hilda (Knoff) Faler. She was raised in Iroquois Falls, Ontario before graduating from U of T as a physiotherapist in 1945. Shirley was predeceased by her husband, Colonel C.V. (Chuck) Carlson.  She is survived by son John and his wife Alice (Daverne), and son David and his wife Sarah James; grandchildren and their families include Dan and wife Katie (Bellefontaine) with children Brenna and Ronan; Andrew and wife Alex (Belton Brown) with children Wesley and Cedric; Mark and partner Kirsten Newman, Heather and Chloe.

Shirley began playing the organ at the Iroquois Falls United Church at age 12 and shared her gift of music for the next 80 years, singing, directing choirs and playing the organ. Wherever "The Army" posted her and Chuck, she became the church organist. Even in retirement, she served as organist for many years at Elgin United Church, and most recently at the Royale Place in Kingston. Both Chuck and Shirley were young officers when they married in 1947—she outranked him at the time, and Chuck for the next 63 years delighted in observing that the ranking had never changed. Together they served Canada in 4 countries and travelled to 45 others, with Shirley working as a physio, or mother, or Senior Officer's Wife. And always there was the music.

"Music was the soundtrack of her life" (paraphrasing Dick Clark).

In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made to the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation or a charity of your choice.

Scotland Funeral Home, Elgin will have more information on their website regarding services including interment later this year at St Alban's Cemetery, Adolphustown.

Thanks John Carlson
