Obituary of Marybel Janet Edye
Mom's wishes were honoured and fulfilled as she passed away at home in St. Marys with family at her side. She was very fortunate to have her health her entire life. During the past months, Mom had a brief illness as her heart could no longer keep up to her pace.Marybel is the daughter of the late Johnny and Marjory Hotson. Sister to John and Irene Hotson of Avonbank , Elizabeth and the late Tom Fairbairn of Stratford. Born February 15, 1929 on a stormy winter's day on the kitchen table of their Avonbank home. Mom graduated from Normal School in Stratford in 1949. Her elementary teaching career took her to Blanshard Township, Timmins, Holy Name in St. Marys and St. Patrick's in Dublin. For her many students, I'm sure you would like to know that Mom actually failed grade 10, as she only got a 49 in Latin. This just made her stronger as she learned to love the fine art of Grammar. Believe us, Mom is probably still silently correcting not only our grammar, but this obituary as well. Mom loved to travel. She was blessed to have health and an adventurous spirit which took her around the world. Some favourites being New Zealand and Ireland, where she attended Trinity College. She was blessed to see all of Canada, except for Labrador, but she figured it would be a lot like Newfoundland so that was OK. Mom loved her animals so much. They made her complete. She loved tending to her many flower beds on her beautiful grounds. She looked forward to spending time with her friends at the Friendship Centre and her newfound Thamesview United Church family in Fullarton. She also had many strong family ties that she maintained with the Edyes, Hotsons and McIntoshs. A daily crossword never went undone, as she continued to enjoy just days before her departure. Jeopardy and The Wheel of Fortune will never be the same without her. Mom is predeceased by her husband Donald "Buck" Edye (1982). Mother to Frank and Trish (van de Wetering). Granny to their children Sarah (Danny Hemstock), Calvin and Joe. Great Granny to Ben and Jack. Janet Edye, her children Will and Breanna Thomson. Joanne and Don Stroud, their children Jordan and Scott. Joyce and Bryan Hutton, their children Jack and Grace. Also predeceased by her brothers and sisters-in-law Vernon and Jean Edye of Hespeler, Frances and Bill Bodenham of St.Marys and mother-in-law Verna Edye. Cremation has taken place as to Mom's wishes. She also expressed her wishes for a Musical Hour with the Gees Gees to take place at AVONBANK UNITED CHURCH, at Line 16 and Road 134, on Saturday, November 24, 2018 at 10:30 a.m., followed by fellowship and food. Private Burial to take place at Avonbank Cemetery.Transportation will be available to and from Mom's service. Please call 519-284-3645 and leave your name and number if in need of a ride. If able, please honour Mom's request with donations to The Salvation Army Food Bank. We thank friends and family for their gifts of time, visits, food, flowers, cards, phone calls and prayers. Mom cherished the love and compassion everyone showed.

April 10, 1919 - Feb. 17, 2009

Hazlewood, Vera Marauerite (I03444)
37 Violet (Vi) Iola Smith (nee Hazlewood)
November 30, 1916 - 2009

SMITH: Violet (Vi) Iola Smith, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great great grandmother, passed away at Birch Lodge Personal Care Home with her family by her side, succumbing to a recent stroke.
Vi was born Nov. 30, 1916 to John and Amanda Hazlewood of Chumah, a small district west of Hamiota. She was the eldest daughter in a family of four daughters, and one fellow, Ray, who was raised as a brother.
When Vi completed high school in Crandall, she lived in her parent's home until her marriage to Herb Smith on Oct. 15, 1938. With Vi's marriage her parents relocated to a farm a mile north and Vi and Herb lived and farmed the west half of 34-13-24. In 1950 they purchased and moved to SE 4-14-24, the original Hazlewood homestead. This moved Vi and her family to the big Hazlewood house she had always dreamed about!
In spite of being a farm wife who helped Herb when she could, who prepared marvelous meals to feed hungry harvest gangs, who canned every kind of fruit, vegetable, and meat available, who drove the school van when Herb was working in the fields, Vi found time to devote to their family of two daughters and one son.
While being a contributing partner on the farm and being a good mother were two of Vi's life passions, there were others. From her earliest days in her parents' home, Vi learned to play the pump organ and then the piano. Like her father, who played old time music by ear, Vi developed an ear for music that would enable her to play anything she heard. she heard. But her parents encouraged her to study music further. While hard economic times, growing responsibilities and marriage would leave Vi with her Grade X Toronto Conservatory, her playing ability was amazing. Vi could sit down to a musical score she had never seen and play it with finesse.
From an early age Vi began her lifelong sharing of her musical talent. As a young girl she walked to several of the local farms to give music lessons, and through the years in both Crandall and Hamiota gave private piano lessons which influenced the musical lives of dozens of young people.
Church was another way that Vi could share musical ability. For almost 60 years she contributed her music to the United Church: first in Chumah, then in Crandall, and finally in Hamiota.
Vi was a strong supporter of festivals. She encouraged her piano students to participate, she trained and accompanied vocalists, and served on on the Board of the Birdtail River Fine Arts Festival.
Vi never turned down an opportunity to entertain, whether in local concerts, official openings, or special celebrations in the community. Out of Vi's need to entertain came the creation in 1954 of the Vi Smith Orchestra. Vi first played the piano accordion, but it was soon replaced by an electric organ and the Hammond sound provided the unmistakable background to the other instruments! The orchestra not only gave her own children an outlet to develop their musical skills, but gave the same opportunity to a number of local musicians.
Vi composed music, as well as playing music. As with many composers, many of these compositions came as a dream in the night. Stealing quietly to the piano she would allow the melody and the lyrics to become reality.
In 1982 she wrote a hymn specially for the 1982 Crandall School Reunion. The universal appeal of this hymn has seen it used on occasion by surrounding communities, and it was included in the R. M. of Hamiota's Centennial celebration in 1984, and the Town of Hamiota's Centennial in 2007.
In 1983 her hymn, "The First Christmas Morn" was adopted by the United Church of Canada to be included in the White Gift Package sent across Canada.
Vi also wrote the musical scores to support some of the Christmas dramas at Hamiota Collegiate. When music is in your soul it will not be contained and until the age of 92 she was still able to sit to the piano to entertain the residents in Lilac Lodge in which she had lived after the death of her husband in 2003.
Vi's musical ability did not go unnoticed. In 1983 the Hamiota Lions Club gave Vi one of their special golden lions in recognition of "Many Faithful Musical Years". In 1984 she received from Hamiota Collegiate the Birdtail River Teachers' Association Plaque recognizing the time and skills she had shared with young people in the school. In 1985 at the Brandon YWCA's first Women of Distinction Awards, Vi was named Woman of Distinction in the Arts Category!
Another passion in Vi's life was the time she spent with her family at the cottage at Shoal Lake. As a very young girl, Vi began to enjoy the annual trip to the lake that her Shier grandparents and her own mom and dad insisted upon. In her husband Herb, she found the man who would be willing to share this annual summer life. From 1947 until 2008, Vi and her family have spent summertime at the cottage: there was the solitude of the lake itself; there were the amazing sunsets; there was family!
Thankfully, the passions that Vi had the good fortune to follow are being pursued by her children, grandchildren and great grandchild.
Left to mourn are daughters Glenda Smith (Wilf Zimmer), Judy (Wayne) Reed, and son Ken (Vicki) Smith; grandson Ken Reid and granddaughters Pamela Stubbs (Ken Steenburgh), Cathy Van Buskirk (Murray Chrun), and Kerry Van Buskirk; great granddaughter Melissa Reid; great great granddaughter Coral Violet Aldrich; sister Ina Hyndman (Glen Wright); "brother" Ray (Gerry) Hazlewood; sisters-in-law Alice Johnston, Velma Smith and Olive Smith; brothers-in-law Les Rudd and Jack (Peggy) Smith; as well as many neices, nephews, cousins and friends.
Vi was predeceased by her husband Herb, her parents John and Amanda Hazlewood; Herb's parents John and Rachel Smith; sisters Verna in infancy and Alice Rudd; brothers and sisters-in-law Ormand Hyndman, Newton (Betty) Smith, Everett (Eileen) Tennant, Cecil (Pearl) Kidd, Buzz (Rena) Smith, and Lorne (Margaret) Caldwell.
