BEHAN, Pamela Jane " Pommie"
Passed away peacefully at the Trillium Manor, Orillia on Saturday, November 19th, 2005; in her 82nd year. Born in Hamilton, Ontario on March 4, 1924, she lived her early years in Toronto before marrying and settling in Orillia, Ontario. Beloved wife of the late Dr. J.A. Tremayne (Tre) BEHAN and much loved "Mom" of Bari DORWARD (Sandy,) Rod (Susan,) and Don (Juliet) all of Toronto, Brenda TURNOUR (Murray) of Cambridge, Cheryl BEHAN (John) of Orillia and the late Barbara OATWAY. She was adored by a host of grandchildren, Kelly, Michael, Laura, Mary, Jessie, James, Jodie, Jonathan, Conor, Cameron, Jamie and Andrew, and great grandchildren, MacKenzie and Keegan. Pam met Tre during the war and married shortly thereafter. They settled in Orillia and began the task of raising a family of 6 children. In addition to her role as a dedicated and loving Mother, she was also Dad's right hand in his veterinary clinic. Mom never lost sight of her family or Friends, who always played a significant role on her life, whether on the golf course, playing bridge or sailing. Pam loved painting/drawing - perhaps best remembered in her annual hand-drawn Christmas cards. In Mom's later years, she was very giving of her time, most notably to Hospice Orillia. She always felt that the knowledge she had gained from her experiences would be helpful to others during difficult times. Pommie's charm, generosity, grace, sense of humour and love will be sorely missed by the many who had the wonderful opportunity to be associated with her. Rest in peace Mom. You will be missed! The family wishes to thank the staff of Birchmere Retirement Residence, Trillium Manor and Hospice Orillia for their kindness and compassionate care. The late Mrs. Pamela BEHAN will rest at the Mundell Funeral Home, 79 West Street, N., Orillia on Tuesday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and on Wednesday, November 23, 2005 at St. James' Anglican Church, 58 Peter Street, N., Orillia from 12 Noon until time of Funeral Service at 1 o'clock. Cremation to follow. If desired, Memorial Donations to Hospice Orillia or the charity of your choice would be gratefully appreciated. Messages of condolence are welcome at www.mundellfuneralhome.com
