Obituary for Jane Wright

Jane Wright (nee Ryan) passed away peacefully on Sept. 10th in Lindsay on what would have been her 67th wedding anniversary. She was predeceased by her loving husband Orville and sons Clare and Jeffrey. She is survived by her children Jim (Christine), Lesley (Robert) and Bradley (Krista). She adored and was much loved by her grandchildren Rebecca, Ryan, Claire, Emma, Bobby, Ben, John and Oakley and will be greatly missed by her many nieces and nephews.

Jane was born in Toronto on Aug. 18, 1930 and was the last surviving of eight siblings. She met Orville while working at the TD Bank at Yonge and College, they were married in 1953 and soon after moved to Lindsay to raise a family. Jane was a lifelong member of Cambridge St. United Church, an active member of the Lindsay community and served in many volunteer capacities. She was a friend to many, had a gift for engaging conversation, and a love of art, poetry and music. She was well known for her quick wit and incredibly sharp memory. Her many friends and family enjoyed hearing her recite an endless number of jokes, poems and songs, some of which she learned as a child. In classic style, on her 90th birthday she told the family with a smile that she was well past her best-before date and that getting old ain't for sissies.

She touched the lives of many, was fiercely devoted to her family and will be dearly missed by all.

A memorial service, following Covid-19 protocols, will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 16 at Cambridge St. United Church, this service will be livestreamed from www.theunitedchurch.com – please click on the “Live Streaming” option on the homepage.

My deepest condolences to you Jimmy, Lesley, Brad and family. Your mom was simply the best; warm, kind, patient and always a great listener. I have so many fond memories of playing with you guys as kids and most especially, Clare, who was my closet friend. I think of him so very much and miss him dearly. Your mom always had an extra plate for all the kids off Albert and Regent Streets and her singing still resonates with me. I was so very happy to have had the chance to meet for a great visit a couple of years ago when I returned home to Lindsay from the west. We chatted, reflected and hugged. It was wonderful. She was wonderful. Take good care.

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. The memories I have growing up with all you is something that I will not forget. You were all a big part of my childhood. I remember your moms sense of humor and smile. I watched the service online and all the storys and tributes were wonderful. The pictures brought back so many memories. Remember God gave us our Memories so that we might have Roses in December. Hang onto those. Take care of one another. You all look like a beautiful family.
