Anne Solomonides, passed away peacefully at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital after a brief illness.
Loving mother of Faye Ladouceur (John) and Mark Solomonides (Grace Choy) and cherished Nana to Kimberlee (Phillip Gould), Nicholas, Brayden, and Arianna.
Anne was born in Wales and was immensely proud of her Welsh heritage. Anne was predeceased by her brothers and sisters from Wales and England. Anne is survived by many niece’s, nephew’s, cousin’s, and other family members across the pond.
Anne joined St. Bartholomew’s United Church on April 3, 2005.
Anne was a dedicated member of the UCW, holding the position of UCW President from 2006—2007. She was a volunteer at the weekly Pass It On meetings, keeping the team organized by coordinating the labelling of the vast amounts of donations that would flow through weekly. Anne was greatly missed when she moved away, with daughter Faye and son-in-law John to Orillia.
The St. Bart’s church family extends to Anne’s family members and friends our heart-felt sympathy and prayers. A cremation has taken place, along with a private family viewing.
In lieu of flowers, as an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to St. Bartholomew’s United Church in Brampton or to your local animal shelter or SickKids Foundation. These charities were near and dear to her heart.
“To be born Welsh is to be born privileged. Not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but music in your blood and poetry in your soul.” – Brian Harris

In last week’s Dove, we unintentionally left out the name of Nea Georgiou, one of our soloists in October. Nea is a member of the St. Bart’s Senior Choir and a regular soloist. We apologize to Nea for our omission. She did a wonderful job on October 11, singing Prayer of Thanksgiving, a Traditional Dutch Melody.
Please support the life and work of St. Bart’s
One of the consequences of not being able to worship together at our church building is that we do not have a weekly offering to keep donations flowing into St. Bart’s. We have a dozen families on PAR (pre-authorized remittances), but this is not enough to allow us to continue to meet all of our regular monthly operating expenses. We are currently drawing on a liquidity reserve to meet expenses, however, the longer the present situation lasts, the greater the need becomes to receive donations through other channels. Some options for your consideration. Click on Givings
