We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Wilena. She was a lovely lady and I enjoyed my time with her when she came to have a manicure at the Shelburne Residence and when we would see her at Trinity United. Our condolences to her wonderful family. Joe & Karen Bojin

My sincere condolences to the entire family on Mrs Flear’s passing. I can not call her by her given name, she was my first ever teacher when I entered grade one at SS#9 back in 1962. One room, no running water, a coal furnace and rambunctious farm kids. Hearing of her passing has brought back a wealth of memories and more than a few tears.
I hope that you can take comfort in the fact that your mom meant so much to so many even from so very long ago.

Lorne, Paul, Wayne, Donna and families,
I was saddened to hear of your moms passing. She was a lovely person. She taught with dad for many years at CHES. I did not have the pleasure of having her for a teacher but remember her well from Horning's Mills. Take solace in the many memories that you will have of your mom.
